    Been thinking for a while about making CL an active-stative language. Recently decided to be brave and do so. (Active VSo languages exist, e.g. Yagua). Also filled in and altered here and there and turned own comments from "plaintext" (with blue background) to "restructured text" (same typeface and background as rest of site) - looks much better!
