Hi, Ransberger!

How about a SCADA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCADA) system mostly based
on Squeak? You could base at least the HMI subsystem on it, but cool
additions would be the RTU/PLC parts on Raspberry PI/Arduino. Even an
editor to IEC 61131-3 suite of languages, particularly the graphical ones,
could be feasible and definitely very appreciated.

Sucess on your journey, wherever it takes you to!
