It is different than his original suggestion, but only slightly. I was
looking to the spirit of his request which is a good one. Think of it like
an integrated Tour De Flex.

I was mainly pushing to slow people down and think about the positives of
the idea rather than just hanging onto specific points.

We should be looking for solutions to common problems and letting people
have the support to make those solutions. Sometimes support means giving
back ideas and small course corrections. Though I love Ruby I'm not going
to put it into Flex - but there are really good ideas over there that are

If someone wants to run with this idea then great. When some code is
completed then we can talk about if it goes into Flex or not. Just saying
no at the beginning isn't helpful to anyone.
