Yes, thanks for putting in plain English what I was trying to say...we
need to consider what we want before we can start building it (or at
least building it well... ;-)

We need people who are potential users to tell us what they would want
to be able to do with the system, in both general and *very* specific
terms.  And we're all potential users, but as my biggest chunk of
relevant tech chops is in QA/test, I can say that when the developers
define the project it is seldom very accessible to the larger user
community...! ;-)

I can come up with some questions, but not until early next year as I'm
about to head out for the holidays...
