Are you available on IRC or for a video call or something? I feel like there's
something foundational from both sides that we're each missing here and it'd be
easier to just hash it out in real time rather than lobbying random emails
coming from places of confusion (at least on my side).

I'm not sure if Paul (or anyone else!) would want to jump in on it too, though
I feel like probably if it's me and you then the two "sides" will probably be
reasonably well represented so if more folks don't want to join that's probably
OK too, particularly since we wouldn't be making any actual decisions there :D
