Sure. This will be a great step to start.

I must be entirely honest with you, Michael: I have the perception that
there are just a few person on this list who understand what you are
talking about because they haven't seen Xopus in serious action.

Can't you provide a link for a working demo so that people can take a
serious look about it?

Another nice thing would be to provide a sample to add to the Cocoon
samples that we could ship with Cocoon disto, that would sure sparkle
more and more discussions, also on the user list.

I fear that without that 'contextualization' many might find the above
details vary up in the air and might consider it noise.

What do you think?

Stefano Mazzocchi      One must still have chaos in oneself to be
                          able to give birth to a dancing star.
