Tom Coates pointedly asks:
Will the API for radiocomments be public and clonable?
Well, let’s ask Phil Pearson, who as I remember it had it cloned in Python about twenty seconds after RCS was released.
Sorry, I love catching Dave with his pants down as much as the next person (um, not literally: whose idea was that phrase?), but this time, he’s pure as the driven snow. “Radio, Manila, or Frontier ever move to a non-proprietary scripting language?” Isn’t there an older version of Frontier that’s open source? Or for roughly the same functionality as Radio, there’s PyDS (and, as of the last time I installed it, you couldn’t ask for a better example of the relative weight that proprietary shops versus open source shops place on ease of installation – I still hope to figure out how to make it work, one day).
