nope, not at all.  the logic for the application is simple enough it can be
developed in whatever language is most comfortable to the person writing it.
the language each subsite uses would be completely irrelevant so long as
they can communicate server-to-server and create/parse xml packets.

but it can.  see my response to dan in the original thread.

sarcasm noted.  *grin*

no platform change is necessary.  in fact, it's better if we don't change
platforms for this.  in the end it will be more secure if ueue is more of a
blackbox -- input information and get information back out with no idea how
it does it.
