+    * Let's get one or two tables together at 10am Tuesday, May 1
 
 ROADMAP DISCUSSION POINTS:
-    (Please place new entries at the bottom)
 
-    * Async IO Core, including a generic Event Loop, allowing modules and
-      protocols to register new events and when to be notified.
+Configuration
 
+    * Build a cleaner configuration system based on an Object Model, 
+      rather than a file/specific directives.
 
-    * Use Serf (and its Bucket system) as the starting point for making
-      filters, buckets and brigades work with the Async Core.
-            <http://code.google.com/p/serf/>
+    * Investigate using small scripting languages for complicated user 
+      configurable things, including Caching Rules, Rewrite Rules, and
+      AAA/Require Rules. Look at Varnish's VCL or lighttpd's mod_magnet 
+      for interesting examples:
+            <http://phk.freebsd.dk/pubs/varnish_tech.pdf>
+            <http://trac.lighttpd.net/trac/wiki/Docs:ModMagnet>
 
+    * Stick with NCSA syntax, or change to a
+        - properties style of syntax?
+        - XML syntax?
+        - something else?
 
-    * Break the 1:1 mapping of a worker to a single request.
+    * How about a simple configuration template mechanism, like:
 
+        T.generic: {
+             host.name: $host
+             host.admin: webmaster@$host
+             host.root: /home/customers/$host/www/
+             ...
+        }
+
+        myhost = T.generic[$host = "myhost.com"]
+
+
+Parent Startup
 
-    * Investigate using Syslets for functions like stat():
-            <http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/2/13/142>
 
+Parent-Worker Coordination (MPM)
 
     * Refactor MPMs to split platform specific needs from the process 
       and thread models.  A reasonable goal is to have one thread model
       that runs on both unix and winnt.
 
+    * Provide a generic IPC or Scoreboard mechanism with an easy to use API
+      for modules and the core.
+
+    * Break the 1:1 mapping of a worker to a single request.
+
+
+Worker Front-end
 
     * Include support for Waka, once an RFC/more details are available.
 
+    * Make the http protocol a module, decoupled from the core.
+
 
-    * Build a cleaner configuration system based on an Object Model, 
-      rather than a file/specific directives.
+Worker Middle-end
 
+    * Async IO Core, including a generic Event Loop, allowing modules and
+      protocols to register new events and when to be notified.

-      configurable things, including Caching Rules, Rewrite Rules, and

+Worker Back-end

+    * Investigate using Syslets for functions like stat():
+            <http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/2/13/142>

     * Investigate providing a higher level module API, which hides the 
       complexity of an async core. Basically, a 'simple world view' for those
       that want to write a simple generator.

     * Promote and include a external-process communication method in the
