[REBOL] Re: Rugby XPi : The next generation

Hi Maarten,

Currently, as I understand it, when the client imports the stubs it gets everything that the server offers. Might be nice to have some server supported packaging of functions into to different "services". This might be useful for when you want a single rugby listening port to handle very different jobs. For example (this syntax for example only - not a request): get-rugby-service/service tcp://... 'data/address-book get-rugby-service/service tcp://... 'file-locking It's not a high priority for me, just something I thought someone might need.

I second Gregg's comment on simplicity. I think that is Rugby's primary asset. It would be nice to have the various features as add-ins. So if you don't need all the management, monitoring support, etc you don't have their overhead. Then again you could possibly make these as "load on first use" so that there is no overhead if they are not used. I'll lend a hand to some documentation. Email me off-list for what you think needs doing and I'll respond with what I think I can do :) Brett.
