Many thanks for the clear explanation. It should be quite obvious now
that my goal, when choosing the toolsets, is somewhere between the goals
of you two people. (Another goal of mine, which is one of a much longer
term, is the reconciliation of Lisp and Unix [1]: "interfaces should be
questioned right down to the libc", and IMO also to the language itself;
ultimately, this would probably result in further minimisation in total
complexity of the system.)
