funny.. i've started gazing at picolisp again because my balls starting to be 
full with javascript.
we are actually building an ERP system in nodejs + angularjs using the 
convergent terminology shared at
but it's just so fucking painful… :(
we tried to build it by doing the "write tests first" approach, using vowsjs 
and following the structural recommendations of the gherkin "business 
requirement specification language", but writing functional tests which are 
synchronous by nature is just not fun if u have to do structure them using 
nested callbacks… (no, vows-bdd just didnt work for me, although i tried)
so now i have a "gherkin runner" i wrote in rebol (<10k), but having the 
business documents defined in javascript, where u dont even have basic stuff 
like object copy and object extension, but u still have to transform these into 
each other… well, it's pathetic.
i've decided to take a break from this project (if anyone interested 
continuing, my position is open, pls contact me!), but if we can explore this 
topic using picolisp, i would like to help out.
