well, I will have to wait a bit for what your system is apto. I also hope someone here is interested in workflow systems, as we will need it probably too (simply defining in an abstract way, what states e.g. Order comes thru - new, financial department, transport department, back, to-repair, finished ....) Other idea of interest should/could be - how well will the system scale? Does it require central repository storage? Could IOS be used to have it synced? Will rebol community come with own IOS like system, featuring some principles of grid-computing? P2P, strong distribution, search, load-balancing capabilities, etc. stuff? :-) Would any such system be an advantage to Robert's framework? Hey Doc, we want your Uniserve to start with :-)

Shouldn't it be implemented in rebol first? It would at least allow us to run it on platforms, where your .dll will not be ported ;-) -pekr-
