Sort of like loading a library and then using the internal map to
referrence it's functions dynamically.  I figured that something like
that could be created (or had already been) and thus, like I said, even
if it could be a trivial issue to expose the functions, you'd still have
to put the work into interpreting them with a user program... which is
not a trivial task...

Haha - yeah, but technically it's not a new issue... :)

Firmly agreed - but we may not have much of a choice.  They will do it
anyway - and I still think it's better to have a Free Software
implementation so that we still control enough of the field to not be
made irrelivent should webservices take off...
