Jon, you're also more than welcome to add your take to the discussion -
you're certainly in a position where you get to deal with this kind of
issues. I'm not sure that coopitition (?) is the right model here,
though; LWN's mission my preclude you from focusing in an area that you
would otherwise consider fairly tasty, but that may well fit LG. This is
the "toss everything in the pot" phase of the brainstorming session; the
"throw away everything that doesn't fit" comes later. Your input would
definitely be welcome.
