For some reason, I get the feeling that in most cases where a user requests that mIRc have the ability to compose the scripting lanague, they are actually requesting that mIRC to be made to run as a background process much like eggdrops.
I've seen the language move from usage in basic implemented to features, to full scaled bots/services, and even an httd and with the exception of speed, I don't really see a major draw back where that is concerned. Perhaps if there was an executable to simply interpret the sources as need and run hidden as a background process, these requests would slowly diminish.
On the other hand, people may grow to lke it and press for an actual executable (developers don't let this detter, I for one want to see a simply interprator
Just a thought, excuse my ramblings.
