Getting Closer..

The thicket of bugs related to the I/O changes afflicting the Wasp REPL are starting to thin out; I cannot wait for some of the changes I have planned for debugging Wasp programs -- even I get tired of weaving through low level trace output. The current issue appears to be a deadlock that forms after the first line is received by the Wasp REPL. Deadlocks in Wasp cause the virtual machine to terminate without comment; I need to change this to emit more information about the current processes, and what they are waiting on. Still no idea what is going on over at EphSec.. Wish people would stop asking me. When I hit Alpha One, I'll start making Wasp more visible to the Lisp community to test the waters.
