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 .... :-)
