I agree that there are numerous issues that will need to be worked out
as time goes on, primarily with regard to project scope, but that can
be worked out in the future.  It seems clear that there is enough
interest for us to do SOMETHING in this space, and the details will
depend on the actual community that grows up around this project.

So likewise, +1 from me.
