Glad to learn it ;-)

Yes, many asked about publishing some kind of overview of the project.
I guess I'll have to do it (though I'd be glad if someone else would
head up this task).

The project is somehow parallelized already. My opinion is each
subproject should begin to write exploratory code to settle things
and find the critical points as they refine their specifications.
Synchronization between projects would be done later and progressively
(partial lazy evaluation ;).

With the current charter, the main problem is there lacking maintainers.
I'm open to any suggestion to improve the organization as well as anything
in the project...
