i think you're right, it is a strange statement.  perhaps because my
interest is from a somewhat different than typical direction.  i'm
interested in how wide-spread grass-roots community collaboration could be
supported doing "gluing" of cloud-based resources - events dissemination and
coordination, link and document resource sharing, etc.  hooking-in content
management systems (like plone) would be one consideration, as an end-point
resource, and things like repoze.bfg on
be useful for doing the gluing...

thanks - i'm hoping to get at least acquainted with it, and very interested
in how the app engine can be used as a gluing resource (whatever that will
end up meaning), and BFG on app engine may serve my to-be-identified
