I think ReactOS would benefit from something like an xml interfacing  
scripting language to ReactOS. Something like applescript, but i was  
thinking integration with the Mono project could greatly increase the  
feasibility of this type of interface. The interfacing scripting  
language could be available in the C# language. Of course mcs would  
have to be integrated into some sort of system service. But first  
reactos needs to have system services and file system protection in  
place before this model fully works.
