|Headline:||Sobyk is not a fork of Tcl|

I picked a name that was not TCL for three reasons.
If Sobyk succeeds, Tcl wins. If Sobyk fails, it was just the work of some guy. And if in the process Sobyk (or one of the design decisions of Sobyk) doesn't fit a particular group's needs, they can fork Sobyk and call it whatever they like. As I mentioned in another post, the name Sobyk means literally nothing to me. It was randomly generated.
What I am hoping will happen down the road is that Sobyk, or a project inspired by Sobyk, or developed in spite of Sobyk, finally does become part of what the Core Team does. I'm still attending Tcl Conferences. I'm still participating on the chats. I'm still contributing to the Tcl community directly and indirectly as a volunteer.
Sobyk is just an opportunity for "Some Guy" to take a stab at a complex problem and solve it in a way that not everybody is going to agree with.
