Coding before the problem is well understood is the worst of all
possible solutions... specifically in many ways thats how to the port
system got into such a bad state.... the idea is to get a good idea of
what is wrong before we fix it... I have plenty ideas but am
purposefully not stating them so as not to color responses to the
survey.... basically the idea is start assume that we know nothing and
gather data without passing judgment and refine stuff based on what we
find until there is a set of features and perhaps even a roughed out
framework that we can be agreed on by the large majority of people...
*ONLY* then can we start to examine what kind of code is even needed.
