but when you add up all the factors, inodes, bandwidth, versioning,
diskspace, minimalism, high-availability, categories, descriptions,
searching.... a model that supports them all would have to be
elegant if it were simple.

the "perldoc way" (scripts embedded with docs/information) applied to
Makefiles (or...) might be handy; a local search engine database (ie
swish-e) for the descriptions could also work well.
