        Since GEAS would not need to be run in a SEE , the verification issues
are not present. Since we are using GEAS on the server side, we can use any
language there, as long as it has a compliant interfacing. As I said before,
it is only a matter of providing the plugins, and a standard interface ( what
ever it is ).

        We need an enterprise level Application Server, just like any other 
we communicate over a network. As long as we need not run any dotGNU apps ( ie
IL,Java,Parrot bytecodes ) in the server, language would not be a problem. 

        Also the Jython project can compile Py to Java class files. As a last 
resort we also have a java based python interpreter , JPython. If they are
GPL'ed, maybe we could just add a python extension some time in the future.
But those may cause performance/security concerns.

The GEAS would otherwise need a client side plugin ( which would be a LOT of 
extra work ). Bill Lance, please note this point please.

The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of them to choose from

        No hard feelings , but if everybody has his own format what are 
for ?. I think ,(*my opinion*) that dotGNU would like a common standard but 
you are the experts in this field. I am presenting an outsider's look at the
issues at hand.
