We've been discussing Views, Locationmap and I18n further and would like 
to ask Anil if it is possible to implement the locationmap editor before 
the Views editor. The reasoning is:

- we are still to agree some issues regarding the structure of the views 
config file and terminology used within it, so there may be some changes 
needed to the editor

- the locationmap structure is using a syntax based on sitemap which is 
very stable now. Therefore it is unlikely to change.

- Cheche and I were discussing a more robust method of I18n, this will 
utilise the locationmap (a proposal will be posted soon). Since many of 
the potential users we have met here at ApacheCon consider I18N 
important we would like to be able to show development in this area quickly.

This will allow us to discuss the views issues and the design of the 
editor with Anil before embarking on implementation (the delay should 
only be short).

Is this OK?
