Well, I want to take this on.
I've already implemented many of these functions, but they are not neatly
implemented, and tied into my personal code at the moment. A spec should
help clean things up.
I'll create a Google Doc to collaboratively sketch out aims, an API, put
together requirements, and a basic plan for a team and soliciting
participation. I'll curate from discussions and what I can find.
Is anyone else interested?
I'm looking broadly for things like:
* specific functions that you think would be valuable
* advice on who to talk with
* any advice, generally
* people who'd be willing to review the sketch API
I'm broadly looking for supporters, users, advisers, etc.,.
