never was used in production.
I don't know what the multitasking did for it, other than run the

Early Un*x compilers ran as a number of processes connected by pipes.
Although this was largely due to address space limits, I suppose it

Unfortunately, it looks like C requires that the lexer and declaration
semantics be carefully synchronized, limiting the potential
