OT: No More Servers

Yes good feature request.

My approach with Livecode and p2p is not to implement everything in
Livecode. If we did that we would be back to the same problems we have with
Livecode and the web stack - I want to integrate the new p2p tools into the
Livecode tool chain using a combination of command line, C/C++/etc
Livcecode Builder extensions, and/or REST calls to a p2p server running on
localhost.

By the way I think I'm not paying enough attention to the Forum's - there
is an API / Livecode stack for interfacing with information there? Also do
we have a chat / irc channel or equivalent? Not the lovely chatrev -
something that developers in other languages can easily hop into and out of?
