Okay. I'm glad we seem to be on the same page with this.

It would seem sensible to continue development here in this community -
get it working to a point when we can demonstrate it, then we can show
it off to others and see who is interested, and where its future home
lies. Maybe elsewhere, or maybe the meaning of 'Cocoon' changes. But for
now it makes sense to stay precisely here.
