(which would also provide a valuable service to its users):

  1. Open source debug, traceroute, and software reuse reporting project, let's call it "OpPort", which instruments code modules to anonymously self-report execution to a public database (including metadata the code can obtain from its processor).
  2. Software engineers will be able to identify their own software in OpPort reports. They can choose to identify themselves to others. They will be able to see anonymous information regarding other modules that their software interacts with.
  3. We can all watch the anonymous identifiers interact, to see how often they are being executed, which are coalescing, which ones are involved with physical reproduction of more media and of themselves, how they are evolving.
