It can be send through the mail, that qualifies it as a small example for me

OK, I personally prefer Ruby as embedded language but jscript is easier to

Btw, would it be possible to create some sort of common interface to scripting
languages? All common scripting langs I know off have arrays, hashes, numbers
and strings. If we could create an interface for each language to tackle those 4
things flexible scripting would become a possibility.

IMHO it would be great if pnet wouldn't just support jscript, but Perl, Python,
Ruby, Tcl and Lua too.

All work and no play, that's boring ;-). Besides, a game is good for Public

Let me be Joe Average here: "You can send a message using your application and
that's cool? I can send a thousand messages using Gabber. You can download a
script, I can do that with my browser. You can send a script in a Jabber
message, big deal.", it might be a milestone, but it's unlikely to be amazing to
the general public. I'm not saying such things aren't important, but we need to
capture the attention of the general public that doesn't really care about small

But let me stress again that I'm absolutely for making the demos you propose,
they are a large part of what we need to do (a smaller part is getting a
larger audience of course :-).
