I don't suppose you feel like writing this up as what we call
an 'RT' (Random Thought) do you? Basically, explain what you
mean, why it could be useful, and how you invisage it working
within the cocoon2 architecture (or even outside this
architecture)? We'll need a gentle introduction to the concepts
involved too, probably. Although I've got a basic grounding in
AI (and I mean basic), I'll need bits of it explaining..

The idea sounds interesting, but at the moment, I can't actually
see what benifits it would bring.. Help! ;)
