A minor disagreement is with the platform. Paul's proposal seems to
be for 3.8 and 4.0 RM, yet there's very little detail on 4.0 because
the community discussion hasn't really started: lots of great features
suggested, some scary changes, but not much agreed. Let's agree the
RM for 3.8 and then when the next release rolls around, then let's see
what we want to do then?
In general, I'm fine with folding into 3.x progressively. Seems
like a good idea. (Now find me more libraries so I can spend
more time on it... ;-) )
