yes, something like that IS needed imo. I just would like to ask - why
don't you try to contact DocKimbel to send you beta of Uniserve?
Uniserve seems to be something like protocol multiplex engine - you have
services installed, which use modules, e.g. httpd service, which can use
CGI or fastCGI etc module. There is more to Uniserve than what I am able
to describe here.
What I currently lack with Uniserve is - client side of things .... I
think that it should turn into P2P solution (and according to Doc, it
hopefully will), as it currently lacks imo unified tracking of client
side stuff also (I mean opened ports on client).
Uniserve can be good competition to Python's Medusa and I think that
later on, RT could decide to license it for SDK, as it can take Rebol
networking one step further ...
So - I would like to see community cooperation upon one as much as
possible universal project, than later on deciding between two systems,
while both of them lacking certain feature here or there ...
