In addition to what I say here, see my earlier post on this subject:
A large organization - in the communication business and happens to
be *very* proprietory - is running hundreds of small applications in
a system driven by socket (or port-to-port) communication. Most of
these applications are either perl or rebol. It appears to work very
well. (A family member is on the management oversite)
In fact I think that this approach is really in keeping with RT's
advertised approach to computing and built-in TCP functionality ...
