I've spitballed a short outline based on the content of the abstract.

I think it still needs to be fleshed out, but this should be a good start.  Sam, Matt, Doug, and anyone else that would like to contribute but haven't chimed in yet, please take a look at the google doc and edit the outline as you see fit.

Hi Nathan,

Interesting.  I was under the impression (from Anthony) this was a
possible thing.  I'll write to the organizers' list and ask.

I think a detailed abstract is a good idea.  We can start by fleshing
out what's already in the abstract.
