Yes, I've been busy; yes, I've been saying that for a long time; yes,
Circle development is being done; yes, there will be another
patchlevel soon.  The main thing I want to do is iron out some of the
nagging details (e.g. alias saving, etc.), get it well documented (I'm
numbering every SYSERR message and documenting what each message means
and how to fix it).  My ultimate goal is to make Circle *so* well
documented and easy to understand and modify that no one will ever
write me email asking "How do I do <x>".

You're right that most of Circle's evolution has been the evolution of
add-ons.  Maybe my role will be more of a patch-coordinator in the
future rather than a primary developer. :-)
