Delusions of grandeur

Sparked by Ian Bicking's simple implementation of the twill language in JavaScript, as well as Robert Marchetti's Python-IE bridge project, PAMIE, I googled about and found a very recent article on PyXPCOM, too.

It should be relatively easy to build a common API layer for JavaScript, mechanize/mechanoid/zope.testbrowser, PAMIE, and PyXPCOM that supports the twill language. Then you'd be able to have a single twill script that runs in-browser & from the command line, and also manipulates PAMIE and PyXPCOM. Wouldn't that be nice?

Just a thought.
