Well said! However, I'm going to play the devil's advocate here. Would 
an 'evaluate' function have different capabilities depending on how it 
was implemented? Or would each implementation have the same feature-set?

What I am driving at is that it is possible that by standardizing the 
evaluate function, creativity and innovation may be stifled; however, 
if they will all do pretty much the same thing, just in a different way 
and with different syntax, then I'm all for standardizing it.

It's a job for exslt effort, I think.
