Low-level lego bricks, but not robolab/mindstorms designs. I think that 
while positioning for larger syntheses and co-designs, working in a 
loosely coupled fashion, with hooks into identifiable nodes, will 
promote bottom-up interoperability.    (03)

For example, if this mailing-list provides (ie, pushes at us) e-mail 
messages with purple numbers exposed, these purple numbers will serve as 
hooks into the identified and archived nodes (REST-visible). Our various 
tools, client-side to begin with, can then grab these and impose our own 
organizations on them.    (04)

This seemed like something eekim and John Sechrest were working on: cf
