as threatened, I have started rewriting the tokenisation and morphology
components of the LKB.  I have checked in the current code as a branch called
tok-and-morph.  The active parser is currently broken and there are some more
minor infelicities.  The revisions are described to some extent in comments in
parse.lsp, but the basic points are:
1) work towards allowing a full chart input from the tokeniser

2) work towards allow several different types of interface to morphology 

3) clean up morphology and multiword code to use the chart in a reasonably
   straightforward way (believed basically done).  morph-history etc have gone,
   as has *morphs* - this may break some of the more advanced user-fns

I am actively working on this and it's probably not worth testing yet, but if
you're about to develop any code that may interact, it would be worth checking.

I intend to check in a very artificial test grammar to check functionality
