I spent about a half hour sometime in the last month talking this  
through with Itamar, though not in great detail. I'd be interested in  
sitting down with both of you and trying to establish more precisely  
how much work is necessary to get something to actually happen here. I  
won't outright promise a PEP, but I'll promise at the very least to  
write down elaborate notes that someone could turn into a PEP  
relatively straightforwardly. Deal?
