Ann: the development version of RASP in cvs in Cambridge should  
output RMRS OK. Well, it shouldn't give an error, although the  
grammar has changed a bit since the RMRS interpretation rules were  

We're working towards a new release of RASP in the next month or so.  
Apart from RMRS being available, the main change will be that it will  
be built on sbcl, at least for some platforms.
