According to my recollection the "Historical Perspective" was 
primarily Bernhard's work.  (Details can be traced at "View history".)
Thanks Bernhard.

Bernhard, I've made that change.  If you're dissatisfied, let me know 
or revert or edit further.

Also I added a footnote mentioning Oberon vs. Oberon-2.  Currently 
footnote 6.  That sort of detail is obvious to an expert but helpful 
to a novice.

Also, to preserve access to the language report, I've added a link in 
the footnote and another in the first sentence of the Historical 

Regarding Oberon vs. Oberon-2, the FOR statement should be a useful 
landmark.  Ie. Oberon-2 has FOR; Oberon does not. The report preserved 
at https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Oberon/oreport is for Oberon.
