Thanks Josiah for your considered response. I will respond at greater length later (as it's bed time in Sydney) but thought I would say a free things. Tiddlywiki is powerful because of its structure and it's interrelated qualities and none should be lost. When I suggested these features be put into the core I should have elaborated. They need to be in the standard, at the top of the documentation. I have no doubt some smart coding can use existing structures to achieve what I ask and perhaps some plugins until then. I am as yet not knowledgeable enough to do this but I will be one day.
The ability to easily set reliable values from existing tiddler info text, tags and fields that is available in all related tiddlers with simple and deterministic ways (for somewhat novice users) is essential, along with a simple way to programmatically manage field values in the current tiddler is needed as well. There is a caviate to this which will be in another reply from me tonight. The problem I see is a gap in the early or middle ground and in ease of cognition without deep knowledge. My ability to understand this will fade as my expertise and expierence overcome the barriers I am facing. Something that is only possible because of a great community.
