We need it for the next stable release (2.3), I fully agree. But here we are talking about fixing the CVS so that we can debug on alpha/ia64. Afterward, we can discuss of the forthcoming description system, what features is needed, and how they are going to be implemented.

Well I have copied everything at <http://people.debian.org/~ballombe/desc/> Note that this snapshot make no change to the prototype itself, since it would involve patching PARI, and there is no C code in this snapshot.
