The OO dream?

Signed message-passing! Multi-language, multi-implementation services! Actor-based distributed computation! Is this the OO dream?
[A] portable implementation of Termite is underway. ... The implementation will also support signed message passing... [A] system will only be able to receive messages from trusted sources... Will this be a way to re-unite the Scheme community? Is it a better approach than providing a common package infrastructure?
From Dominique Boucher. Heady stuff. The mind reels at the possibilities. We'll see.
