It's a good suggestion, Jon, thank you.  But I don't see that any of
the prime movers in this area have applied to come to LSF/MM this
year: except for Kamezawa-san, who is coming (but I expect will be
focussing on other issues).  And now we're full up.

Let me keep it in mind when drawing up the agenda; but I doubt this
will be the forum to get such a ball rolling this year.
