I suspect it's because the EGL Cafe isn't really a business application

of the same reason midrange.com doesn't run on a midrange...
A forum is web application to access a database of messages (obviously
this is greatly over simplified). I _think_ the software they are using
(written by Jive Software, same company that writes the open source
jabber server I use) uses MySQL as it's back end database.
And, FWIW, if I had the time and inclination ... I suspect I could write
a list processor and archiving system that ran on an i. midrange.com
runs on Linux because there I had the hardware to run it on and software
was available to do exactly what I need.
My point is: It would be a great proof of concept (and validation of
utility) if the EGL Cafe were written in EGL.
