Thanks Andreas.

One of the more difficult aspects for a novice is the factoring of 
functionality in the system. Some things are obvious.  Booting 
requires access to boot code, which requires a device driver.  There 
are a limited number of places to put it and some are more sensible 
than others.

Other choices or necessities are more subtle.  In S3, CutLines can be 
applied to any Text.   The reason to put CutLines in Mail isn't 
entirely obvious.

Also in S3, ET.Do executes commands, similar to Batch.  In EO, why is 
Batch in Oberon rather than in Edit?

Apologies in case the question is too trivial.  Thanks,                ... P.
