More precisely, it is an "imperative". We have to translate with "Be lights!",
or "lights on!", or I'm wrong? "It may happen" indicate hypothesis.
Following you, FIAT should means "Fortunate If she stArTs".

In Italy, during '70, to criticize FIAT management political behaviour,
Dario Fo (italian Nobel prize for literature) told "fiat voluntas tuas!"
in a piece of his.

Nothing, if we are lucky :-)

Out of joke, muLinux, in my feeling, is an opportunity to
contact friends world-wide and to communicate with him about
a common (rather accidental) subject.

remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
