You're absolutely right - Axon/Kamaelia hopefully will not just be limited  
to those areas. It just so happens that those kinds of systems are the  
underlying reasons why we started building Axon/Kamaelia. That's therefore  
where we're concentrating our resources at the moment.

We have ... alot! I really do hope that this system is used for more. I'd  
be very interested to know if anyone has had a go at building any  
components - for whatever purpose. The potential for component re-use  
might mean less work for us! :-)
