Agreed. Both Tyler's web_send protocol <
http://waterken.sourceforge.net/web_send/> and E's CapTP protocol <
http://code.google.com/p/caja-captp/> are good language neutral distributed
capability protocols with implementations in several languages supporting
communicating event-loops concurrency. Which one is better is a complex
similar. This community should look at both and understand the
considerations each is optimizing for.
I'm cc'ing e-lang because both protocols are often discussed in that forum.
