Why don't we release a minimal version with an open content license  
so that particular communities and user groups can make their own?

In other words, why don't we work on making the *foundation* as good  
as possible so that future embellishments can be added as appropriate  
by other people? That way, we don't end up with the current one being  
pulled in all different directions.

Cheers,
Bijan.
