Yes but do you see the extra complexity of N-O running
under A2: when you `quit` oberon, back to A2, you don't
lose the newly edited RAM:Oberon.Text which you can
still see when you restart Oberon, in A2.
And also if you dir-list Oberon.Text*, RAM:Oberon.Text
lists first, which suggests that N-O running under A2,
now sees the RAM:Oberon.Text as Oberon.Text .
But putting some 'trace' in RAM:Oberon.Text would
confirm that the new RAM:Oberon.Text was being used.
