        BSD license is good enough for me, we can even GPL our fork ;-)

        This *is* great news Dan, what we now need is a solid platform to test
out our _theories_ about webservices.

        Until XForms is supported fully, we have no option but to look at 
alternatives. We should consider the fact that people who are working on this
cannot download mozilla each week to keep updated. Glade, Python , Php etc are
available in each and every desktop distribution.

        The issue is not of much concern as this app will get eventually dumped 
dotGNU takes off fully. This was just an example of how XMLRPC could be used
to benifit the end user, by glueing together a PHP script and a Python program
using XMLRPC.

        A standardisation has been the hardest part of software development,
more so in a democratic setup like dotGNU ( where even I get to say my 2 bits ).
I am sure that dotGNU is all about choosing the right standards. If one of
the projects develops a good standard, it is natural for the others to follow
or support it.

        It is imperative that it should be possible, because the above words 
encompass the whole idea behind webservices.

Happy Deepavali.
