Adam: how does this fit in EDEn? How close does it come to our own ideas

E is a programming language for writing distributed applications. It combines
Sun's _Java_ programming language with some powerful enhancements:
communications extensions for the development of distributed applications;
optimistic computation, a powerful method for reducing the effect of
communications latency in distributed systems; and an improved security model
based on capability semantics and public-key cryptography, permitting
fine-grained control over access to system resources without sacrificing

E is intended for programmers writing network applications, including
databases, groupware, publishing systems, multimedia, and games.
