about the logic of not 100% open source at this point:


There is a "Core" which must evolve - it is not clear who would do
that, thunk is not interested in manning any ramparts of that nature -
been there did that

There is no desire to write a book

there is no desire to become a guru (although.....   some recognition
would be welcome eventually)

There is a commercial path that seem boring at the moment - but seems
95% certain to raise some eyebrows when up.

AND there is a history of doing cool things to have somebody else
rename them and you DON't want to start old thunk on that!!   but...

he did a FMS (file management system) that had "self - healing",
single big file that worked its way across multiple floppies
redundancy and such that just worked - and performance was reasonable
enough.   about 2 years later, a friend explained that there is now a
system called "db" and the fms must be "like that".   true story.
somebody in California always seems to get credit for what they do
later - and at age almost 62  - ol thunk feels that this could go
differently if the right people in the right place know what they are
hearing.
