I'm having a look at the article by Hoare (removing spelling mistakes
introduced by the OCR process) and the following sentence has me stumped:

"2. Do not seek to present the user with a virtual machine which is belier
than the actual hardware; merely seek to pass on the speed, size, and flat
_unopiniated_ structure of a simple hardware design."

I think "belier" and "unopiniated" are errors. Has anyone got a clue as to
what they should be?
