I was wondering, the essence of bitcoin is in the block-chain right? There's no reason why there can't be many different clients with many different features and interfaces that all can transact or even mine for bitcoins, correct?

Correct.  If you have the skills, go for it.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Would you say we have a plethora clients?

I can't use the word plethora without being reminded of this classic scene from Three Amigos:

I don't yet, but I decided to spend less time on the internet arguing with numskulls and more time learning Python. Cheesy

Dunno if Python would be a good choice for this sort of thing but I already have a project. More clients on more platforms would be good for bitcoin generally though, people still talking about a bitcoin rival seem to me to be missing some implications of this project, effectively they are talking about rivals to the current clients, not bitcoin itself.

Just my two toshi.

I can't use the word plethora without being reminded of this classic scene from Three Amigos:
 

Plethora is one of those words that are happy and pleasant regardless of their usage or meaning.  Like menagerie, hubub and brewhaha.

I just like saying them out loud.
