        There does seem to be a dearth of information flowing from the
development teams.

        Yes indeed, ILU support "out of the box" for both Dylan
implementations would be very, very nice, and would give Dylan a
competitive advantage in the distributed systems arena. Even if it
isn't part of initial releases, it may be a good idea to standardize
as a Dylan library. I suppose that when we see compilers, we can start
fussing about fleshing out libraries, so I'm getting a head start :-).
