....loads a module based upon conditions John! Yo! Conditional module containers - precursor to general programming constructs for connecting module functionality thru "graphic" sort of web-page programming!!!!! EEEEEAAAAA!!! This is cool. Don't worry about those fearing "abuse" - programming languages can be used to write viruses (or just really cr*ppy code! ;-) ) but the good ones people recognize, and those prevail. I think the bigger conceptual direction here is.... well.... pretty exciting. Look at the number of "non-technicals" on these forums, and think how well some level of this could (eventually) suit them. Keep at it. When thinking of conditional "redirect" (analogous to conditional calls) and conditional "loading" (analogous to conditional code branching) and loading data based on user operation (conditional data assignment)..... gee - what's left for a general turing machine? This could easily get "feature creeped" into un-usability, but .... with careful attention... appropriate abstraction, and kept as sparse as possible.... this could add some REALLY COOL ability to DNN - a administrative-level (potentially even graphically) "programmable" web portal! Let's see where this can go - anybody with some "challange" (but 'real') use case ideas? Let's see what kind of model, relationship diagrams, etc. come of this! Cheers!
