I'm interested in developing a UI on top of Tahoe that doesn't leave
powerful caps sitting in the URL widget all the time, but instead has
a "share this" button that offers up a powerful cap.
This sounds like what Alan and Jed are suggesting in this thread and
what some folks suggested in a conference call with me a couple of
If you try the Tiddly-on-Tahoe UI:
You'll see that I already added a few user interface behaviors along
these lines, which I did after the first time I accidentally cut and
pasted the write cap to my blog.
Since I added those features, it became easier to use my blog without
accidentally exposing my write cap, but eventually I accidentally
shared it a *second* time, which is why I now think I need even more
help from the UI layer.
