That would be awesome!

He volunteered long, long, ago but I haven't heard anything from him

As it happens, I've been accumulating a list of functional requirements
for admin capabilities that I'd like to post for discussion.  I'll be
finished with what I'm thinking in the next couple of days.

What I'd like to see us do on issues like this is to discuss and agree on
a functional specs document that is checked in to the CVS repository, and
then start working together on the pieces.  It's a little more formal than
the usual :-) open source approach, but I think it will help in the long
run.  Does that sound like a useful plan?
