You might want to have more than one moo at once.  Or you might want to
start from scratch.  Etc.  These cores arent that big.  If you have enough
memory to be running a moo at all, you  have enough room to keep a 1 meg
core around.

Im not sure I understand this.  Thats why I was thinking of "named" moo's.
Prompt the user for the "name" of the moo, then its all accounted for
nicely, and handles different moo's on the same machine nicely.

Btw, that tutorial you showed me was excellent.... for making a source
package.  Ill dredge through and see what I can dig up on making a
binary package.
