Josh thanks for the followup on this.  Was he also connecting Plack to C compiled scripts?  At the conference Andrew Baerg was very interested in this approach for IC5.  He was going to do a bunch of testing and see if he ran into any issues. I think understanding better how this works with C and testing it throughly is the next step.  Perhaps we can even get some camps setup to test.  If anyone is interested in testing this on existing IC5 projects in there development environments, please report your results. This information would be very valuable.  If you need any help setting this up please reach out the ML or #interchange and I can share my experiences.
