Great talking to you the other night. Very sorry I have no time
to read the zGigGag (oops, sorry !-) traffic since leaving Finland.
As I understand your points, one of the things you would like
would be some way to see open docking-points. This is of course
One way I would suggest would be an attribute (i.e. connection on
a.something) for one or more of the following--
? Visible Open Docking-Point.
? Visible Docking-Point (open or not)
Note that within the preflet system as I've designed it,
this would not be automatic, since the preflets are expected
generally to exert their preferences from outside.
So any connection can unwittingly be a docking-point.
Therefore this would be a flag you'd set on a cell
if you wanted it to be a noticeable docking-point.
These are options if you like them.
