Interesting idea to use "function style" for the processors instead of 
properties. But this might be a problem with more complex processors. In 
particular I'm thinking of the pre-/append object features:

10.content.processors.5.append = TEXT
10.content.processors.5.append.content = ' ]'

So what do you suggest for page and user configuration? I (still) think 
it's a good idea to create a base libraray/framework, call it XCL 
extensible configration language, as a set of parser and base classes 
that can be filled with life. TS would only be one application of 
(possibly) many. Ideally XCL can be shipped with just a minimal 
additional framework code and so can be reused in other apps.


PS: Please retain the old uppercase notaion for TS objects. *Your* T3 
5.0 vision goes away much to far from the old spirit. IMHO your 
alienating all current users. I know this isn't the right place for it...
