means very different things to different people (especially
those within the hypertext research community). I can't just
shorten it to "hyperstate" either, since that would imply
"much more state" (not what we want).
It has some aspects in common with "data reactive" engines, as in
though I wasn't aware of that paper until 10 minutes ago.
Much of the software architecture research on constraints was
influenced by the GUI work on constraint-based layout toolkits.
I would suggest calling it the "hypertext constraint" when in
normal discussion, or the "reactive constraint" when within
slapping distance of a literary hypertext fan.
