People use this stuff every day. If there is a compliance level of 0, then
developers will just pick that (you know it's true) and stop there.

As far as the restrictions imposed by NSM... NSM requires very little of
the application developer. The hardest part is if you want to support the
session 'switch' functionality, and even that is not very difficult (hey,
all the Non-* does it, so that means I had to implement it 4 times... so
why are you complaining when you haven't even tried?) The requirement that
you *not* do something is a hell of a lot easier to comply with than
requiring that you do something complicated, which is exactly why NSM
*doesn't* require applications to do anything complicated...

and now NSM is about asking for even more and thicker red tape...

cough

now, i could suggest NSM API to be split in levels of compliance and restri=
ctiveness, so to speak:

- level 0 :- clients just store/retrieve their own private state from a sup=
plied and independent session sub-directory; no GUI File menu restrictions;=
no file location restrictions, no symlinks, no juggling, no dupes, no sh*t=
.

- level 1+ :- anything that (may progressively?) imposes each one the menti=
oned non-restrictions of level 0.

starting with level 0, there's a fair chance for NSM to revolve, and ev=
en co-exist peacefully with jack-session and ladish. call me a dreamer :)
