I'll be happy to coordinate the efforts here. Did you have time to look 
at the quick draft I sent out last week in this thread?

When it comes to designing the API I would be happy to start from 
scratch if that makes it any easier for the users of the library. I 
think we should strive for a simple API, in line with the XOM design 
principles [1]. I especially would like us to follow "As simple as it 
can be and no simpler", "There’s exactly one way to do it" and "Do not 
allow clients to do bad things". I don't think the current code fits 
with any of these so there is some work to be done.

Agreed, what would be the requirements for use within CC?
