design top-down, but implement bottom-up. May be once people have thrashed
out the general ideas, and thrown a couple of "further reading" links
around so we know we're all looking in the same direction. We can pick a
small-ish example - none world scale. Large enough to be interesting, but
small enough to be do able, someone said on this list. And, then talk
able how to model this example and hopefully even implement something
basic.

It's a matter of focus and balance before movement.

Jeff.
