FYI: You're soaking in it. :-)
This is a test to see if I can manage to write a Scripting2 blog post here in the instant outliner. Let me enumerate the things I would have to do to make that work.
1. Add a New Post button to the "My Outline" window. A dialog appears asking the title of the post. It calls to the server the same way the button in the Scripting2 window does. If it works, a headline appears with your title in it. (You can of course change it whenever you like.)
2. Saving. Your changes would have to go to both servers, to the I/O server and to the Scripting2 server. This is going to be the tricky part.
The answer is yes indeed. I can write a blog post in the Instant Outliner.
