Honestly, I was just interested in learning Forth from an academic perspective. I thought it would be convenient to have a package for it, and practical from a package maintenance perspective due to how infrequently this project changes. However, I know Forth sees usage in low-memory environments, so it is possible some users might see productive benefit from a package.

DataDrake raised the priority of this task from Needs More Info to Low.Jul 21 2018, 12:16 PM
DataDrake moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

That's enough justification for me. Thanks!
