Does anyone know how SIF and IMS relate to each other?  Bruno and I looked at IMS
some years ago too, and concluded that it was much to bureaucratic to ever
actually come up with anything usable.  But if these two flawed bureaucracies
compete with each other for "market share," it may be much easier for whatever we
do to be accepted.
