Ok, so after reading most of the posts here, I finally got it...  The way I'm looking at it, is this...

smCore = Bunch of functions that can be used by anything (Basically the core of ANYTHING).

SMF = modification package that uses smCore (1 of those anythings mentioned above).

Anything else = modification package that uses smCore or it's own functions.

This sounds AWESOME!  And I'm glad that you guys are doing this, cause this will promote more advanced modifications, ideas, basically anything would be possible.  Sounds great!

Good Luck!

Well, the terminology is a bit off... kind of makes SMF seem like a tiny little thing :P smCore is a platform (database, permissions, file IO, etc.) and SMF is a module (large package that sits on top of smCore and uses it to get stuff done), with current mods being plugins for smCore that require SMF and affect SMF's functionality.

Oh, ok, I was under the impression that their could be another forum or whatever code that could even use the smCore, that bypasses SMF completely.  Cause than, if this were possible, it would definitely be more impressive.  Well, just the same, should be interesting.

Fustrate:
That could happen, if plugin developers are clever enough (and if there's another forum that uses smCore, which is a possibility).

SoLoGHoST:
Well, than that's pretty cool than...
