Exactly. I'm designing an embedded system (not web-related, though)
and the thoughts are similar to what you describe (it will be open
source if I succeed, so don't worry, you'll know if I succeed, and
I'll keep a coward silence if I fail miserably :-))))

(BTW: don't worry, you didn't hijack the thread, your comments have
been very instructive too)
