Hi Nicolas:

It a result of thinking about the things we have been talking about - 
exploring possibilities - taking chunks of stuff separating them out and 
applying the question - how does this fit into a future scenario.  At 
the same time this addresses issues raised by Avalon members - Berlin's 
criticisms of the size of the type and containment sub-systems in Merlin 
and the need for refactoring, the addition of test cases - Gary's 
comments and impressions during usage, etc.  Throw into that off-list 
bug reports, questions and comments and you have sufficient content to 
ask the question "what if ?".

If anything, I'm interesting in doing some early validation of direction 
- so I can be more concrete about my opinions about what I think is 
reasonable, achievable, desirable, etc.  What I've committed is the 
ongoing result of that process - its contributing to my thoughts about 
where we can go, how we can get there - and I figure its better out on 
Avalon that hidden away on my machine.

I mentioned before that I wanted to write out thoughts on approaches - 
well, I shaken some of those thoughts around and validated a few thing - 
and identified some constraints - so hopefully I'll be able to 
contribute more tangibly.

Cheers, Steve.
