Since there didn't appear to be any objections, here is the list again,
but this time with suggested names against some of the sections. 
Perhaps each of us could reply and add (or remove!) our names against
the parts we're interested in writing, until everything has somebody
designated to it?  

We can have a couple of rounds of this, I'm not suggesting (for example)
that I wouldn't be willing to take on any of the other sections, or that
somebody else can't do something I've stuck down my name against if they
feel strongly enough that they want to do it.
