I'd like to find out more about the current ideas that people have
concerning the role of Process within Slide.

According to the Architecture page, the Process Engine will be a helper
that sits alongside the Security helper, the Lock helper, etc etc. Will the
use of these other helpers be controlled by processes run by the Process
Engine? Or will certain processes be hardwired into Slide?

For example, if a client requests a resource, will the Security Helper
always be queried, or is this something that is definable by a process run
by the Process Engine?

By adopting a 'Everything is a process' metaphor a lot of functionality can
be gained; the whole way a Slide implementation functions can be altered by
simply rewriting the processes!

I would like to help define and build the Process aspect of Slide, so any
thoughts would be much appreciated!

Thanks for your time,

Jon Ewing.
