Nothing in this discussion is specific to language-based cap systems. Indeed,
the first cap "remoting" system, or whatever we call it, is Jed's DCCS. DCCS
worked between OS instances -- specifically instances of Jed's single-machine
object-capability OS, CCS. (I believe I picked up the term "remoting" from Jed.)

In the interests of terminating the cross-posting, I am sending this
separately to e-lang and cap-talk. I suggest this discussion continue only on
cap-talk. If a substantial and separate sub-topic develops that is clearly
only of interest to language-based cap systems, we could discuss it on e-lang.

On a related note, Tyler's recent discussion comparing expressiveness of E vs
Waterken/Joe-E is clearly about cap language issues, and so should continue
only on e-lang.
