Do you mean that it's not as well written out as the extent to which you've
thought it through? Or that you've already written out your own plan?

Either way, I am _very_ interested in hearing your ideas. Please feel free
to contribute to that page. :-)

Note: it's a work in progress...

Oh, that's very interesting! Is there anybody else like you lurking around,
I wonder?

That's an excellent point.

I guess that I don't mind volunteering to accept content and inserting it
myself into the "framework", if there is one.

Nah. Been there, done that. I do appreciate the friendly reminder, though.
