Well, your ideas sound not bad, but also like a LOT of work. And as
always, you will see the real problems of your ideas only if you
actually try to implement them. So, better start implementing instead
of thinking about how the GUI should work ;)

Although I'm wondering a bit that you want to focus on real-time (as
the name contains that), but did not speak about that at all...

Ok. Actually, many ideas sound similar except that you want to
implement them in the root-task instead of the kernel (which makes
sense when using Fiasco.OC, of course). Anyway, your project still
sounds interesting.

Best regards,
