I mention this to help focus some ideas.

There is ongoing interop between various grids that have adopted OpenSim
now. The four grids "ScienceSim" from Intel, OSGrid, "UCIGrid" and
"PseudoSpace" come to mind as four I have observed and participated in and
is all using HyperGrid.

There have been folks from other grids at meetings on OSGrid, and folks from
OSGrid participating in meetings on these other grids. This has all been in
full avatar form with working chat and inventory across grids.

This development and testing is ongoing and the HyperGrid logic is
speerheaded by Prof. Crista Lopes at UC Irvine.

Currently, as I read the IRC and opensim-dev e-mails, the current focus is
on adding some of the needed security functions to protect both grids on
each end of this interop.

There very well may be some lessons to be learned from this effort that will
help MMOX.
