first let me outline my needs for

  a vcs abstraction lib
  a ide based on the idea that everything is a plugin


* execute backends in a different process 
  * circumvent gpl/gpl2only of hg/dulwich/bzr
* execute the fontend on python platforms not supported by the backends
  * python 3
  * jython
  * ironpython
  * pypy


an ide based on plugins

* run parts of plugins in different processes
  * avoid gil races for cpu-intensive tasks
* run parts of plugins on different computers/platforms
  * test execution
  * introspectiong of test/deployment environments
  * general work on remote data/projects

In order to archieve those goals 
i think i need a few conceptual ideas 
for installing the different libs on the different platforms
as well as a tool to help proxying method calls to remote objects.
