I am wondering the impact when IBM decided that the base memory to not 
exceed 64kb, in the late 1960s...

I suppose more experienced people in this list can agree that certain 
decisions made can be almost an edict. So, there is a re-building 
process every now and then, hopefully to by-pass such edicts. Python 
itself is already such an example.

Are the codebase of Python 1.5.2 and Java 1.1 totally replaced and 

Lisp compiler is the 1st compiler to be created (according to the 
Red-Dragon book, I think) and almost all others are created by 
bootstrapping to LISP compiler. What are the implications of design 
decisions made in LISP compiler then affecting our compilers today? I 
don't know. I repeat myself, I DO NOT KNOW.

Certainly I do not have 15 PhDs in computer science or computating 
mathematics...... I suppose there are some syntax error in your 
statement to allow me to parse it completely. "too vague", not "to vague".
