It's funny you mention this as I was JUST about to write and ask 
(following the 'expert system' thread) if someone had implemented such a 
beast yet.  I would like to make a simple neural net with one or two 
layers of hidden units to implement some experiments I'm doing.  It 
doesn't seem like it would be that tough to do in rev/meta.  I was 
thinking of just using lines in a field/variable to represent each node, 
with the rest of the information contained in various hierarchical items 
in the lines, but perhaps there is a better way of doing it or someone 
already has something finished that they could share.  Anyone?
