And here's another one I thought of:
No synchronization framework that I know of, but still hugely cross platform w/C++ API.
Probably lighter-weight and cheaper.
The above web site has a number of projects that are similar in spirit to what you're
describing. The term they're using is scripted documents, which I think captures at
one aspect LDC pretty well. They've taken Tcl/Tk along this road, and developed a persistence
engine (MetaKit) to support more involved applications -> the domain where
Rebol (or at least Rebol developers) now seek to tread.
Again, no personal experience so YMMV.
