That's definitely preferable to posting one liners.

Mmmm, that reminds me of my own project, Argon - it's very back burner
since even if I come up with a full spec I'll never be able to get it
implemented, so it's mainly an intellectual toy, but I've completely
ignored commercial and other such annoying considerations and just decided
how I'd do it if designing computing from scratch.

The one thing it does that's interesting is transparent clustering, a
decision which has very deep effects into the network and data storage
