To both of you - that's not it, boys :-) Someone here requested Gabriele's communication protocol proposition as worth starting as a project, but as usual, our user base has very little resources (man-power) to proceed with such project. But - rebol can do better imo. Don't we want grid computing in rebol? Don't we want at least basic (used by all) protocol framework to build upon? It is a pity DocKimble has not enough free time to proceed with Uniserve, but unless we get something like that working, we will see protocol X here, protocol Y overthere, every such piece of code done with different requirements/pov in mind, which in a big picture, provide us with no unified way to what is called messaging framework. There should be central async multiplexing engine, with the ability to plug/unplug protocols in real-time, install handlers, etc. But until then, we are near ... but not exactly there .... :-) -pekr-
