Well, I have not submitted a proposal yet, but I will try to put something
together in the near future if no one else has already begun work on this.

However, it would help to have more discussion of the topic, and to
find out if any user groups are really interested in this idea.

It would probably be a good topic to bring up on the new user group organizers
list, but I don't think that list has been formally announced yet and I am not
sure how many people/groups have yet joined. I guess I will ping that list to
see if anyone is there yet...
