I guess one of the the things I wonder every now and then
is whether we really should be keeping standard as implying a
... traditional/historical/whatever Unix system, with pr and lpr and tcsh
and bc and dc and whatever else that people would traditionally expect,
instead of moving them to a task that can be installed only by people
who actually know what they are, and then making sure we provide a real
Unix system in that case. But by the looks of things there's still not
much need for a change there, at least at this point.
