Urm. I'm keen to be guided by people who have a better overview of where
connectors are headed in general and what needs doing really. My
priority is to make sure the current Domino/JK connector works OK with
TC4.0. Once that's nailed I'm open to suggestions. I'd be happy to
produce a wepapp version of the Domino connector, but I'm also happy to
undertake any work that needs doing on the IIS connector (I'm not
suggesting there /is/ work to do on IIS -- it's just something I could
quite easily do).

As usual I'm also pondering why I'm spending so much time on IIS and
Domino when I wouldn't run anything apart from Apache if I ruled the
world. I wonder what I did in a past life...
