Isn't this the purpose of the quiet period? :-)

We have deliberatly kept the interface simple/flexable so that we aren't
making any big steps. Actually what we are proposing is much simpler than
what I suspect many folks have in mind. :-)

I'll try to get the diffs on today. And I won't committ
anything until developpers have had a chance to look at them. :-)

Take care,
