    Sure you make a point.
    In my proposition, *people* are to be present at each end.
    It's more a social tool than anything else.
    What you are up is living completely at the system level.
    We need that too, of course ... but I have really no competence available
    at that level.
    See developers' department for that kind of article ;-)
