For the moment,STATUS file is just defining the exit criteria.May be we
can add a section in it,listing the tasks/features planned and completed.

Wiki is a better idea,but as jason pointed out,a CVS copy,
is required by the apache process.So lets do all our modifications in wiki
and later update the STATUS in CVS.
