SEUL: "Core" proof-of-concept

This can be set up on ftp.seul.org fairly easily, though we may have no need 
for anything but base and options for a while.

Good plan.  These should probably be posted to seul-dev-distrib for now, and 
we can create a distinct list for it later if necessary.

It's precisely this kind of leadership (the "take-charge attitude") that this 
project is in need of right now.  I'm seriously running low on time to work 
on things like this, so it's time for people to step up, as you have, and 
help take charge of parts of this project.

Good point.  It would be pretty dumb to start out with libc5...

Need not remain that way, though.  If it proves to be workable, it may 
become the basis for *the* core.
