    Yep. Increasingly my thought. If OHS is to be a broad
    standard, there will be plenty of manpower to recode
    it in different languages. It's the standards, the
    architecture, the mapping of the core.

    As to modules, well ... a lot of my work rebuilding
    ecommerce web sites involves ripping *apart* huge
    rigid unscalable constructs, and turning it into
    a system of: modules. Modules still work.
