Re: The current disscusion is good, but...

Hello Ken Evans,

Once you wrote about "The current disscusion is good, but...":

Agree.  I think it is too early to talk about languages, etc., since
not even all people have the good idea of what we are building.

Yup, I suggest we wait for some time for people to come... cause there
are even N many time zones around ;-)

Agreed again.  Just what I wanted to add is that we might have a situation
when we need some software working off the web.  I don't know if PHP for
example allows you to build standalone "web-away" applications, but Perl
and Python defenetly do so.  So, I personally would prefer to use one
language (like Perl or Python) to implement the project, rather then use one
language (eg.,PHP) for web part and another (Perl) for standalone part, until
of course there are major performance advantages found, which cover 
maintainence overhead ;-)
