The dev list is the place for developer discussion. Please do join us. 
There has been plenty of discussion already and is available in the 
archives. At this stage Thorsten is playing with an implementation to 
check that the ideas work and to give us some code to actually comment on.

Join the dev list, read the archive discussions to get up to scratch, 
take a look at the org.apache.forrest.plugin.fbits in SVN and let us 
have your thoughts/contributions.
