Yes.  I have a semi-coherent theory about a log relationship between
numbers of users and interested users and between them and people who
can provide code.

So how do we proceed?  It's not going to get very far if it's just you
and me moaning about not having enough free time.  I'm sure a poll of
people on this list (or of people you meet on the street) would show
that most people feel they don't have enough free time.

It seems to me that it's still a bit premature to say "let's just make a
wiki and thrash out the design", even if someone were to stump up for
some non-free time.

Daniel, if I may ask, in an ideal world, how would you like to see an
XSLT 2.0 version of libxslt be developed?
