Yes. Dan and Ann tell me that it should be stable enough by now,
that it would be possible for me to treebank the data I need now,
and not have to re-treebank anything later, when the new version
is "officially" released.

Yes, so that's why I'd rather work with the experimental version
now than build my software (which works off of the MRSes) around
the old assumptions.

Yes, arrival of the new chart mapping preprocessor in PET is
also eagerly anticipated from my side... The particular setup
I was using for the treebanking today was using the LKB, though.
Do you think that is what might be causing my particular
"amnesia" symptom? Are you saying that I will need to use PET
instead for the new grammar? Will the grammar not remain
compatible with the old preprocessing architecture? Is the
chart-mapping preprocessor (currently / going to be) implemented
in the LKB as well, or just in PET?

This is what I'm currently seeing:
[16:30:13] browse-tree(): `fracas-new' --- item # 4
[16:30:13] browse-tree(): retrieved item # 4 (2 parses).
[16:30:13] browse-tree(): retrieved 1 tree record.
[16:30:13] browse-tree(): reconstructed 2 edges.
[16:30:13] browse-tree(): retrieved 6 decisions.
[16:30:13] set-up-compare-frame(): found 5 discriminants.
 `Some Italian men are great tenors.'
I'll get an LKB source tree from the SVN now, and let you know
what happens with that.
