This sounds really cool, I think we should have a discussion
on how to do this, if we want to do this, and how we could
go about using only one version.  Personally, I kind of like
a development version where we can make changes, discuss them,
fix them, as a team, and have them slowly merged into a version
that will appear on the web.  :)
