yes there is a meta-description in SmallWiki 2. Actually it is used on
Command-Objects only, to be able to build and render GUIs
automatically. I think this will make it much simpler to build GUIs for
different front-ends, e.g like the Seaside and the Trippy interface
that I'm currently playing with.
I don't know how far to continue the idea of having meta-descriptions.
Of course they could be added to all the objects in the wiki like the
server, the structures, the document-entities, the properties itself,
etc. but I don't know if they are of big use there.
I'm currently just playing with that stuff and there is nothing very
useful yet. However - as always - I'm looking for comments, ideas and
contributions from everybody.
