Glad to hear from you about this project... Really think it should be done with everyone that wants to be implied - even if it is part time only - and I know there are lots of ppl in this situation, since I normally am myself in it.

I may later jot some further concepts about the way I envision it all but I wouild also like to see what is your vision in this field of interest. Can we exchange on it a bit more - when you'll find some SMALL period of time to do it ?

I am also interested in your toolbox since I teached UNIX SHELL usage for about 2 years in the mid-80s and I also developed some apps using the available tools and some SHELL scripting by the end of the 80s - then I was working for my own small business - I don't do work on it anymore for the moment - only search for an ultimate tool - REBOL may be is the answer - but for the moment I miss some more training and maybe some more openness from the REBOL engine - as Petr described it in the Link's CONFERENCE some time ago ... In fact I also thought to develop my own DISK, FILE and FOLDER toolset when I'll be more knowledgeable about REBOL, just to ease and minimize the time to do these boring repetitive tasks related to them ...
