I almost tagged this off-topic but it's directed toward ordinary Debian
users (with developer backgrounds). I first raised this on
modular-debian but I want to get some ideas from a wider audience.
I'm starting to get familiar with Plan 9 and D-Bus, to compare how they
try to solve the same set of problems.
Plan 9 concepts attempt to solve Unix problems in a very different
way than Opendesktop.org. For people wanting to return to the original
Unix concepts, 9p/plumber (or an updated version) seems like a natural
fit going forward, for basic IPC purposes. 9p is already in Linux, and
probably could be ported to the other Debian ports.
I realize I just have to convince millions of people to re-plumb their
core OS in a short period of time, but recent history teaches us that it
that this is entirely feasible! Thus emboldened, I would even deign
to give users a choice in the matter, but realistically, this would
probably be an experimental project.
You won't convince anyone if you do not build a PoC. Especially developers
giving their time literally for free.
Asking questions is a nice way to learn how you could do that PoC, anyway.
Asking and trying.
What is 'PoC'? Probably will be blindly obvious once I've been told.
Proof of concept ?
