SLAP! ;)

Just kidding. There's a lot that is worthwhile in what John and Michael are doing. For one, libnsd will be a great thing but it's not quite there yet. In addition, their have preliminarily moved off of nsxml and onto tDOM, got things running in tclsh, etc.So for the pure academic pursuit of building a completely tcl-based system, it's truly worthwhile.

Most likely, it will also continue to be worthwhile even if libnsd comes out as one can imagine how much easier it is to add to and manage a tcl library than a C library, even though JimD is amazing.

So it's energy well spent, IMHO.
