enabling write access to list of installed converters
|Assignee:||J. Templ||% Done:|
The list of installed converters (anchored in Converters.list) in BlackBox 1.6 is only
available in read-only form to programs. Therefore, it is not possible, for example,
to reorder converters or to remove converters that have been installed.
The field Converter.next would need to be exported as read+write for that purpose.

enabling write access to list of installed converters. Refs: #122.
As proposed by Doug Danforth.
This is an experimental trivial solution to the requirement of removing an installed converter by a program,
for example when unloading the implementing module.
The anchor of the list is still read-only and contains the .odc converter.
The solution may be changed to a more structured form in BlackBox 1.8
after experience has been gathered with this approach.
