yes

the offer of working with a 3rd party to make clone-able fully
functioning - closed loop demos stands.

the need to communicate has been lowered a few levels as sense has
been made of things.

exciting it is:

.....probably, mostly, (putting thunk in the shoes of the Ruby
Community)

because it would demonstrate a simple thing in a simple way...

......confusing it is because it is not a gem, and it is not a rails
alternative

......confusing it is because it is bigger than a breadbox, in fact
has 8 or so modules of about breadbox size

.....confusing it is to thunk:

because he would like to see it become something he knows it should
become but the 100% straight up - show us your code approach at this
point does not make sense  for ANYBODY

........confusing it is because some "trivial" things like saving
"files" are complex and thunk would need help to turn the EXPERT
SESSION into a web app that it needs to be (and he has done already
using Wee for domain#2)

..........confusing it is because people he knows to be at least 10X
smarter than old thunk have not figured out what this is, which
indicates that it isn't done, which further confuses things.

enough confusion shared?

how about this.   after 15 years of not contacting anybody in his
field of Statistical Control work he contacted Mitutoyo yesterday.
True story.  The useless dumb ineffective politico he was about to
fire is in charge of their IT (aurora) and does't care to hear about
anything new.

true story, i swear an oath on it
