I'm including the general discussion mailing list on this reply. I know
there are a few people that would love to help/participate in these (and
future) ideas. I hope you don't mind...
I like the text (included below). I would prefer we lose the phrase
"where for a nominal fee", but I'm interested in what others have to
say. Maybe we should create a wiki page and group create/edit?
