OK, I am one of the few who are forced (and like to) invest in using 
Pascal (Delphi-language) in deeply embedded projects.

Of course I really would like to help beta-testing this. Unfortunately, 
due to a firewall jail I am working in, I can't access an SVN.

Have I been correct assuming that I can do a "secondary" GUI using 
MSE(-ifi), i.e. taking a normal (existing) Delphi or Lazarus program 
that does feature it's normal GUI and add some MSE code (and widget 
definitions) plus a transport channel and then I can create controls 
that are visible on the screen of the remote machine. Moreover when the 
remote user "clicks" a control that had bee defined in that way, an 
event should be triggered (in a thread <the dedicated event queue should 
enable event driven programming in a thread> or in the main thread).

Have I been correct assuming that either a Pascal program or a browser 
plugin (is that Java code ?) can be used as a target of the transport 
channel, and both should show a user interface that had been defined by 
the master program ?

It would be great if you could send me an example (at best a windows 
exe, using http) and the browser plugin, so that I can see what MSE can do.
