FWIW, when talking to people in person at conferences like LWE, the
usability argument is always what blows their mind- 'we're trying to
make it simple' makes people very excited. So generally, this is
always our strongest point; I probably didn't make that clear enough
in the first draft.

I'm really pressed for time (LWE is killing me, though I love it) so I
haven't read all the way through Steven's draft, but I've uploaded it
to for others
to peruse/edit/comment on.

Thanks for the effort, Steven- I hope this keeps the ball rolling.
