Actually I have no opinion on it at all. I don't have time to get involved in
a project at the moment, and thuis I haven't tried to understand your long
explanations of what it is.

Since I don't know what it actually is, I don't know if I like or don't
like the idea.

If it is something that will help non-programmers better use the 
computer resources they have access to without having to learn how
to program, then it would actually be something I would be interested
in - since that is an area I am interested in.

If it is that old assembler type thing then I'm not intersted since
that is an area I have no interest in.

If it is to do with autocoder by Smart Software Company, then I'm also
not interested, as automating open ended questions is not something I
personally find interesting.

I only posted to try and help you better communicate with programmers, and
if your reply is anything to go by you didn;t bother reading my advice,
or didn't think it was valid. Since your reply has not generated
any interest in me (a programmer) for your project - but that really
doesn't matter, as as I said, I'm busy at the moment.
