or maybe starting wiki pages for the "good" ideas would help to get
the general design discussed and get brainwork into "how to do it".
i think this should be a first step today especially if its about
collaborative development.
even if no one would be implementing it at this point... collecting
concepts and having a number of concepts for the ideas to pick from
and then decide what to do next makes alot sense to me.
If it doesent happen for fc6 it might maybe happen for fc7 unless more
important or plain better ideas come up then. just my point of view.
