On IRC Steve asked if we should comment on the use cases as they're put 
up on the wiki. I think in general that for the next 8 days we should 
hold off on debating the use cases that are added, to avoid derailing 
collecting the use cases. Starting one week from tomorrow, we will be 
spending lots of time discussing & debating the use cases.
