I disagree.  The "core" database should NOT change.  It should remain
untouched.  You merely use the core to "bootstrap" your own core.

So I guess /usr/lib/lambdamoo would be appropriate for the "starting"
cores.  However, /var/lib/lambdamoo is entirely appropriate for the actual
"operating" moo databases that you get after the first checkpoint of your
new moo.

K.  Maybe sometime later.  But the performance enhancements apparently
make it much faster, and no work is currently being done on the p series
of lambdamoo servers.
