Welcome to my humble abode of quaking REXX stripts and tremulous mailers.

Unghh.  Care to define, "full hybrid" and, "driver free"?  

I've been looking thru PIKE recently as a possible stealable language
base.  Its not really what I want (I *really* like the fact that my
current effort is type-less), but it has a lot of promis.  If I really
start feeling sick enough I may even go as far as making the language a
shell ala MUQ, and then allow any number languages to be (optionally)
hooked in to the running server.  Its cute, its neat, and I'm not sure its
worth anything.

Err, single inheritance tree and/or lotsa friend functions?  Or just
attempted logical  resolution of any method on any object even if there is
not a direct definition for that method there?

The old lot are trickling back in at about one or two a day so far. 
Unfortunately I don't have NG access at work now <sigh> so my recruiting
efforts are stymied.
