    One interesting tidbit I forget to mention
    at the meeting last week:

    Servlets are typically used to augment information
    delivered via the http protocol (html pages). But they
    can *also* be used to deliver information via the
    mail protocol -- among other protocols.

    That fact has really interesting implications for the
    design. If we start with an email client, as Paul
    recommended. And use an email-based server, as Eugene
    has mentioned, we can do some *really* interesting
    server-side stuff, in addition to client-side
    processing of Lee's Distributed DOM (DDOM).
