Re: official release

There is one remaining major issue, from my point of view, which I've 
brought up a few times but don't recall getting a real response on:

Can we *please* quote the values associated with multiline bodies?  
We can unify parts of the BNF and reuse the single-line parsing 
implementation.    Aside from the usual excuses of concept reuse and 
coherence this also means the MOO implementation can (as usual) just 
use the MOO tokenizer.  The overhead of the additional slashification 
for quotes and backslashes is pretty small and we know that any MCP 
implementation already has this functionality available.

I of course vote yes on the mcp-cord and mcp version: changes as any 
right-thinking individual would.

I was going to make some remark about how it would be cool if by 
private agreement clients and servers could support multiple auth 
keys to model different levels of trust (such as blessed-by-server-adm
ins and something-Networker-did) but I realized that there's really 
no point in including this in the spec at this point, especially 
given authkey checking is worded as a "should" now anyway.
