That's a good idea and I also like what Gabor proposed. I hope that we
don't spend too much time on debating this though and use he time to
also assign work items for the handbook and coordinate. Once we reach
a conclusion, we should make sure that the current merges Glen is
doing between head and the isbn branch are finished and then work with
the new model we agreed on by then.
