They both seem pretty cool.  piper seems to be a project to have a pipe 
equivalent for gui objects - although it seems to need every program to be 
written with support for it.

I'm not sure narval is - even after skimming most of the documentation - the 
front page says "NARVAL features cutting-edge artificial intelligence" and 
that it would "become the ubiquitous dedicated intelligent personnal 
assistant we've all been longing for during the dark ages of dumb computing"


Anyway, neither conflict or overlap with my project, but I'm looking forward 
to going over these and seeing how they are implemented.

Thanks :)
