Although I failed to mention it at the colloquium, I have to echo Jon
Bosak's sentiments -- Adam's proposal is *very* exciting, and
potentially *achievable* because of it's strict limitations. At the same
time, it tackling a problem domain that is large enough to produce a
seriously useful result -- both for current problems and for designing
the next-generation system.

Much, much more on this subject to come...
