For this reason I'm thinking of switching from gpg to encfs. It has an option for auto-unmounting after a period of unactivity. It would also play well with programs that need to read password from a file.
Has anyone else here had the same thought? This guy seems to at least;
I guess the next OS revision you mention would be "Dano", which according to the Wikipedia article was leaked on the day the company closed down. In that case, there should be quite a number of screenshots floating around, such as . YellowTAB Zeta was also based on Dano.
The very first web browser had editing built in. That's why HTTP has the concept of verbs in the first place! Otherwise GET would probably be implicit. Forms and POST came later, but PUT and DELETE was part of the original idea behind the web.
I totally agree that browsers should allow editing. Even if you are not authorized to PUT the page back to the server, it would still be useful to be able to edit before you print or save the page locally.
I really have no idea why we were robbed of this capability! It was probably just laziness from the people who wrote mainstream browser and httpd implementations.
This reminds me of Bedrock Linux, which allows you to run multiple linux distros on a single kernel instance. It does so using good old chroot, but has an implementation that is capable of breaking out of the chroot when entering a new one. This way the different environments become more integrated in that a RHEL binary can call a Debian binary and so on, creating a sort of super distro which is itself quite small and simple.
