I would probably not even bother with the old requirements except as
perhaps a place to get ideas that you feel might be useful. Concentrate
on what is feasible and useful to you, then present it. I'm sure folks
will have something to say... :)
As far as languages go, I personally would prefer C or C++ for speed and
portability, but that's just me. I also don't like to depend on many
outside libraries or packages. Again, that's just my take on it, though.
