Dan you were very helpful!
Please, don't delete your pages on quiz surveys.

Me too have quit education some time ago, but I still hope that
my project will come true. (The itch to scratch  has  gone  but
the obligation to community didn't).

I still don't agree.

There must be a standalone backend engine. And let frontends be
integrated to whatever app it  is  needed.  Yes,  it  could  be
advertised  and  packaged  together  with  some  community-ware
software and look like "integrated".

The power of UNIX is coming from the possibility  to  construct
complexes by combining simpler tools. Or lets rename SEUL
to SEUW2K ;-)
