No, actually I mean public API. It may not be the interface of choice
for application programs, but it is intended to be the foundation for a
family of specific language APIs.

There is a serious issues of executable/library compatibility between
compilers from different parties (see separate post). Nickolay is
arguing that there is problem. I'm inclined to believe, subject to
evidence to the contrary, is that institution barriers prevent those
problems from ocurring. Do thing mean that we may need separate
binaries for Forte and gcc compiled programs on Solaris? Right, it
appears so.
