We have an "ancient" version in experimental. Shaya said he wanted to
work on a new version when he goes back to the US.

I have tried to build the last version of linuxconf with egcc and no way.
gcc++272 worked fine.

I agree it's a very interesting system. I don't know how it compares to
COAS, but at least it's here now. COAS development seems to be "frozen".
We missed the oportunity last year, when Shaya promoted it for a few
months. Now we should try to build something usable for slink.
