agreed - let's find out what need to be fixed on a technical feature level -
then address the best way TO fix it.

let's ASSUME in our discussions that very soon we will have our own box (tm) to
play with thus have complete freedom.

one issues i see in merging them - 2 use xsm (fine) 1. uses drupal (php cms).
edevelop's forums just can't function without dynamic www - xsm itself can't
really scale there. so do we rewrite forum code in php to serve from xsm? do we
have a split-personality site (not very attractive maintenance and design-wise).

how do we merge the efforts into "1 cms" (take that loosely) - or is it ever
