Could you list some of the ideas you guys had? At least that way they
are preserved in the archives.

Would be good to combine that with some kind of desktop roaming/$HOME
mount system so you could have a universal logon, but that goes back to
the digital identity stuff that me and Adam talked so much about before
we hooked up with Andre. Lots of issues that aren't apparent at first.

I'd like to have a stab at it, but have no time at the moment (or more
accurately, I am already committed to other projects). An idea for when
the desktop is more competitive perhaps....
