Hi tim, I wanted to comment on a couple of paragraphs. I will send 
separate emails, in hopes to hear your views. First, regarding a 
hierarchical naming/interface/consumer meta service.

Another bit of work I did in this area, is the Eventual Linda 
package(called ELinda on Cryptography or Oceanside). I added an ability 
to register and pattern matcher with an eventual registration, which 
schedules a reactor to react to an incoming event. I was trying to think 
how to make it hierarchical in lookup and distribution. I did not get 
very far but the eventual event registrations are there. I wanted to 
combine an interface repository with a hierarchical naming service, 
perhaps using ELinda for capability introduction.
