@0xcafebabe is the scxml to dot part fully general?—@ndw
@ndw Specific things are multiple result files and the shape layouts. Also not fully featured. Supports only states&transitions in digraph.—@0xcafebabe

@alexmilowski potential for interop with / inspired from #expath archive module ? @ndw @xquery @fgeorges 2/2—@rdeltour
@rdeltour @ndw @xquery @fgeorges I am trying to avoid base64 representations but I will take a closer look.—@alexmilowski
@alexmilowski ok. I was thinking maybe at the archive / entries description document. Also not being zip-specific @ndw @xquery @fgeorges—@rdeltour

@patrickDurusau No, peace. Fuck war. We can be adults and agree about some things and disagree about others and respect each other.—@ndw
@ndw Like banks and the poor respecting each other's property rights? I've seen the play. I know how that ends.—@patrickDurusau
@patrickDurusau 'Tis true, It all ends in blood and tears.—@ndw
@ndw Yes, but sometimes, like French Revolution, those who would plan the lives of others get to do some of the dying part.—@patrickDurusau
@patrickDurusau I'm not sure whom you're casting in which roles on this occasion.—@ndw
@ndw The French Revolution was to illustrate winners and losers can change due to war. Roles is a much more complex issue. 2/2—@patrickDurusau
@ndw No more than I know who you were casting into which roles in peace. Both war and peace have winners and losers. 1 of 2—@patrickDurusau
