15:17 ugexe i'm really starting to like the idea of having %?META, but realistically would need a faster json parser or a faster-to-parse format
15:20 ugexe that also solves the "how do I know what version of myself im using" thing better than $*REPO.need($?PACKAGE).distribution.meta<ver>
15:21 ugexe and arguably Distribution could stopped being passed to CompUnit (although maybe pass the class, or a totally lazy Distribution)
15:23 ugexe is there a way to serialize the result of the first parse of META6.json into the precomp files themselves?
15:32 nine It would have to be referenced somehow by the compiled code. A %?META variable could do that.
15:37 ugexe if i want to prototype this can I just try to emulate %?RESOURCES?

17:24 ugexe NativeHelpers::Blob is failing 2017.08 (as you already know). but if you install it under 2017.07 and then try to install it under 2017.08 it suddenly works
17:25 ugexe (site, not home)
