Interesting.  Loci (now part of Piper) was originally developed as a
bioinformatics application.  We intended, and still do intend, to set up
"collaboratories" based on the system.

By "if implemented reasonably quickly", do you mean (1) "if Piper becomes
functional soon" or (2) "if Piper networks can be assembled quickly"?

If you mean (1), we'd like to get things working soon too.  Right now, the big
challenge is merging Loci, GMS, and Overflow (not to mention BlueBox).  Brad
and Jarl have been veritable busy beavers, while I spend most of my time
posting brain boogers to the list :-)  But no-one has complained too much :-P

Hmmm.  I'd like to hear more :-)
