According to the lab guys, the (semi-mythological) next version of VEE should
be better-behaved in this respect than previous versions.  How much more
should become apparent after it gets into customer hands (at some
unspecified time in the mid-term future).

If this sounds lukewarm it is only because discussions of futures are on
uncertain and dangerous ground ("maybe" has an odd tendency to be fed back
to us as "you promised").  I am personally very much enthused over what I
have seen of the new technology.

If you have more questions, let us know.
