What is Miranda?

Miranda is an open source messaging system that records HTTP POST/GET/PUT/DELETE messages to a cluster of systems.  It is up on github although it is currently in the design phases.  It is based on the open source system called subpub which is also on github. subpub was originally called "Prospero" from William Shakespeare's play The Tempest.  In the pay, Miranda is the daughter of Prospero, hence the name.  Prospero/subpub was developed by Chris Chew.
