Another question that EricP raised during the call: redundancy between
task forces is one thing, and it's best to avoid, but tie-in between
task forces is a different thing.  To what extent should the task forces
be linked?  For example, should we try, from the outset, to link them
together into something cohesive?  Or should they be largely
independent, cross-fertilizing opportunistically?
