Wow, that's fascinating!  I know so little of how software works in 
such devices.  I guess I imagined it worked more like some pice of 
software that loops saying, "what command just got asked?" and then the 
software that runs the function gets called.  Interesting to know the 
whole thing is a loop.  How meta.

Perhaps the next hardware version of the EDP could have a tachyontronic 
system that would totally eliminate latency, and actually happen a bit 
before we did it.  Wouldn't that be sweet?
