(Nothing formal nor up-to-date.

(In the absence of other users, or enough people using programs written 
in it in used by others, then it is easy for the project to be volatile.

Previous, simpler versions I used in the 90s, which were part of a 
graphics app, /were/ used by others, both the language and the programs 
I and they wrote. So it had to be more stable. It even had a 350-page 
manual, created with the same graphics app of course.)

I'll try and throw something together, because it could do with it.)
