Revolution and the Web, focus on IDE Add-ons

I've seen my little topic grew to the point of not being related to the thing I had in mind anymore. People here talking about morfik and about engine changes, I want again to try to focus on what can be done now by a group of volunteers by using nothing but revolution ide add-ons... no externals, no engine changes, no third party technologies (except maybe xsltproc which is standard on unix machines).
Objective of this first phase:
* Create a Remote Procedure Call system that is able to expose revolution handlers or functions as something accesible by a networked client. Implement this as a selfcontained library, no magic stuff, just plain code. (possibly REST inspired)
* Create a plugin thing to help with the RPC code, maybe allowing you to select methods on the topstack to be exposed and thus having the tool write the stubs for it.
I think those are reasonable objectives for a first experiment, what people here think?
