I started something like that (in Perl) a couple of years ago. Lost
interest cause I was in need of a job at the time. Never went back to it
Do / will modules be auto-detected, so if one calls another that doesnt
exist, it doesnt crash out, just let it be known and carry on ?
Are / will modules be auto-installed similarly, ie. no need to update this
conf file of that ini file or add thi sto the list over there. Just place
file in modules directory and next time app runs, tehmodule gets noticed,
imported, parsed. etc.
As for front end. It would be nice to support Mozilla but a folly to
support it alone until it gets a non-hacker userbase (maybe when AOL
releases it to its grubby masses).
Still, many things can easily be done cross-browser with Mozilla and MSIE,
as long as you keep long-term goals in sight, and avoid quick'n'dirty hacks
as much as possible.
Reading back on your original mail, I'm still wondering if you had a
specific question, or just making your plans known ?
