I think it raises the same point - to be honest I don't like a web
interface on the end of services at all - IMHO any external (non-IRC)
access should be on another heavily-access-controlled end of the
database. Although I have all faith in Andy's web server coding, I'd
rather my web access was done by a web server, and my IRC services
handled by services, both sharing a common database backend (any news on
the MySql plugin? ;) - this is the whole point in unix in general - many
specialist programs working together, to a better (faster, more secure)
end than one large behemoth of a services/web server/microwave/kitchen
BTW, I haven't been around much because we've merged with some friends'
net, who run Epona, so that spares you my endless XML nit-picking until
I can convert them to IRCServices ("friends don't let friends use Epona" ;).
