Yeah, but all you need is is read/write an s-expression.

An idea I played with once is to have some general mechanism to load
stuff from the web, in addition to other things like loading modules,
loading things selectively (.zo or .ss or local cache or web), making
things (web->cache.ss->.zo), versioning, etc etc etc.  I think that
this is a good indication that the whole thing is something not to
jump too fast at.

BTW, talking about the mailing list -- is it possible to to have the
administrative message at the bottom?  ((a) No matter how I try to, I
keep reading it on every message, (b) it's more difficult to snip when
you reply below (which seems to be more common) and (c) I think that
is the more popular choice.)
