They actually are imeplemented, just look at the current bleeding edge
'e update' in Aida, this one was heavily influenced by #markDirty from
Iliad. And in accordance to the main principle of dialectics: thesis,
antithesis, synthesis, also enhanced into the next level. This is a way
of cooperation, cross-pollination if you like and it is working very
well between Aida and Iliad! I hope once Seasiders will join this party
too :)

Nico otherwise was too inpatient with his bag of ideas and rather to
wait Aida to implement it, it merge best ideas from Aida and Seaside in
Iliad instead. Well, as said we are merging now back :)
