see, I would think that choose-your-own-adventure is what we have and
what we're focused on now. The tools in F7 were good but not great and
not very obvious, but we've been working on improving just that set of
tools. The web-visor work and the decisions about what the standard
inputs are and standard outputs are for our toolchain make the
choose-your-own-adventure distro even more real.

but you haven't been talking about that - you've been talking about spit
and polish which sounds more like integration -
choose-your-own-adventure and integration seem fairly antithetical
unless you have N teams for each adventure type doing the integration.

is that what you were thinking?
