Whoa, perhaps i should not be surprised, but i am. This must have been a massive undertaking. I've been using Wolfram Alpha here and again for years now, but this opens floodgates of potential. 

My issue with Mathmatica all these years is it has been mostly closed off to folk outside of academia and a small subset of corporate users. The potential that they are using these extensive language retrofits to link Mathmatica through Alpha to the rest of the Net is intriguing.
 
I will try to report on this again once i've had chance to explore what writing, deploying, and maintaining a system using the language looks like.
