I'm using it on various servers doing data processing, where the code is
mostly in small, independent programs as opposed to larger monilithic
ones. I guess the goal is to try to use the filesystem and process
model as directly as possible to store data and operate on them.
I recently made the type/class links fully symbolic, resolved at run
time, where formerly those links had to resolve statically to their
class directories. Types can now include ordinary files in addition to
directories; e.g., a class can declare that a file foo will be a boolean
attribute, with methods to operate on foo found in a class directory.
The scheme is experimental and evolving, but is functional enough to
