It's humbling how many ideas one has are often duplicated time and time
again by others :) <bad humor>Of course we all know that Bill Gates is the

Couldn't such a thing be implemented as plug-ins. ie: Find a program that
has plug-in support (and has full source under a liberal enough

overhead that's simply not needed), and run with it? Hence not reinventing
the wheel..
