Bringing in someone from either of these two camps would not only be
interesting but beneficial as their efforts Im sure are directed at userland

I would suggest that this should be addressed after a discourse from either
of the two above as they would be closer to the source in terms of product

of ease of use products that will facilitate all the requirements once
