The time is more than ripe to build that now. Yaws + Mnesia
+ records + possibly some additional description "little language"
would make an excellent starting point.

Quite a bit of work though, (guesstimate: 3 hackers x 3 months)
to get a first acceptable version in the air. It also requires
lots of good documentation and packaging.

Should be done - now.

Actually, I think one could make a good living from this, build it,
write a book, and sell consultancy on the toolkit only.

Should also be done - now.

Not by me though, I'm - well, fully occupied - to say the least.
