Hopefully it can produce some more conversation topics at the GT.

I saw the PDF, but without the comments or extra talking points its hard 
to get much out of it.  I.e. the questions are asked, some great quotes 
(and a really nice looking presentation), but no content to walk away 
with.  Hopefully that can be added in later.

As to the technical detail, I've used Rails and I've used Cocoon--I know 
where things can happen.  Its possible and it can/should be done.
