Re: Kernel messages...

This idea sounds not bad, since the kernel is full of Messages
and Text ;-)
But i think this "string" to string[number] conversion
should not be done before compile-time because then
the debugging and traq-down process could be strongly obstacled.
The src will maybe become hardly readable.
Nevertheless it's a good step towards minimalism,
something that i like in *nix progs & apps;
of course one could argue :
Is that really necessary, we got plenty of speed and ram nowadays
so why wasting energy in making everything smaller and faster.
But this is Bad Thing(TM),
remember a game of chess in less then 1K for ZX-80.
Why not back to the roots. Smaller and faster progs for Bigger and
Faster Comps, well that's Good Thing(tm).
