Re: Multi-source package. Native?
Actually, Zed privately answered this. Apparently I was
wrong about what "native" meant, so I'll just have to

And regarding the IRAF "bootstrap", yes I understand this.
Essentially what's going on is that IRAF is (or is trying
to be) self-hosting, in that the build process actually
uses IRAF to build. This is the same problem with Lisp
compilers in Lisp, C compilers in C, and the recent PyPy
project that is writing a Python compiler/interpreter in
Fun stuff. ;-D
