So you think we could have a ZigZag test?
* There are cells and dimensions
* No user data is ever lost
* There's no cut and paste

And stuff like that? I don't know, I think there's a lot more in ZigZag 
than TeX that's hard to specify. About GZigZag not being under 
Ted's control, isn't it an artistic director vs. technical staff matter? 
AFAIK we _want_ to get the key bindings right, we _want_ to do the other 
things with or without specification, just that it's not here now. Might 
also be that our time perspectives differ too much at the moment.

Wondering and pondering,
