Hi Ralph--

	The beginnings of it are there. The classes to look at are Module, 
Author, MethodDescription, and the others in the 'Spoon-Modules*' 
categories. You can browse them in either the control or working 
memories. The main difference between that and the latest unreleased 
stuff is the way new classes are defined (it no longer uses ClassBuilder).

	Of course, I should just be able to cite the UUID of a module that 
refers to everything you should look at, but we're still bootstrapping. :)

	Cool! I expect that there will be some fiddling with that delineation 
(to deal with conceptual overlap, etc.), but that's more or less the idea.
