[REBOL] Re: UHURU/RSL/? summary

I think I start believing in the RSL again ;-)
Some suggestions from my side:
1) Make the repository database'd. We can use MySQL for that, as bindings
for both Core and /Pro /Command exist. Should simplify the keyword search
2) Style guides shouldn't be that hard. Formatting is most of the time what
make a script readable: that can be automated. Undocumented
functions/objects can be detected and a reason for replying to the author
the original script with automatically inserted hints, such as <Insert
My point with 2) is that if you automate, people can code in whatever style
they wish as long as they use Rebols built-in doc facilities. This is a
realistic approach (IMHO) to get a library/repository up and running.
3) Namespace placement (on submission) can be automated too, I think.
One other option is some distributed script network. Thsi can be easily
built with the next release of Rugby, as that will feature oneway, deffered
and redirect messages. The latter allow you to do something like
rexec/oneway/redirect [message] [destination-list]
which simplifies P2P messages flying around.
