Thanks for the background. I guess my biggest question is what's
the easiest way to keep an eye on this experiment. Given my time
constraints I can't volunteer to help with direct contributions, but
given how personally excited I am about the direction -- I'd be more
than happy to serve as a user guinea pig.

Totally hear you! In fact, truth be told, everytime I nee to update podling
status I feel like that extra level of things I need to do forces me to do
only bulk updates. If we can fix that by making the process super simple
that'd be awesome!

Thanks,
Roman.
