19    Description:
20    
21    1. Modifications to the SML/NJ code generator and to the runtime system
22       so that code object name strings are directly inserted into code
23       objects at code generation time.  The only business the runtime system
24       has with this is now to read the name strings on occasions.
25       (The encoding of the name string has also changed somewhat.)
26    
27    2. CM now implements a simple "set calculus" for specifying export lists.
28       In particular, it is now possible to refer to the export lists of
29       other libraries/groups/sources and form unions as well as differences.
30       See the latest CM manual for details.
31    
32    3. An separate notion of "proxy" libraries has again be eliminated from
33       CM's model.  (Proxy libraries are now simply a special case of using
34       the export list calculus.)
35    
36    4. Some of the existing libraries now take advantage of the new set
37       calculus.
38       (Notice that not all libraries have been converted because some
39       of the existing .cm-files are supposed to be backward compatible
40       with 110.0.x.)
41    
42    5. Some cleanup in stand-alone programs.  (Don't use "exnMessage" -- use
43       "General.exnMessage"!  The former relies on a certain hook to be
44       initialized, and that often does not happen in the stand-alone case.)
