Every program will grow until it has a GUI, an XML parser, and a scripting language. Along the way it will have the ability to send or receive email (possibly both).

    • I think AxKitNG is very close to stumbling upon a large cache of holy grails. Getting to a state where a program can be written once and then run from within mod_perl or wxPerl is a very interesting one to ponder.
