surely not!  ACE is the code name woodley has adopted for his question
answering system based on the ERG.  as of late, it includes a generator
with almost all the bells and whistles; only, it is not running the ERG
trigger rules for vacuous lexical entries yet, hence an input MRS needs
to supply those.  for convenience, i put those into the mrs structure, 
and allowed printing and reading (in simple format).  the default is to
suppress the slot (VCS), however, so no-one should ever get to see it.

as we speak, we are evaluating the ACE generator for use in LOGON.  if
nothing else, it appears to be reasonably efficient.  i should leave it
to woodley, though, to comment further.
