All -- both Jack and John are unavailable tomorrow, and Steven is out next
week (perhaps Jack too)...so I suggest we try to make progress by email
between now and May 12 when we can meet again by telecon.

Let's focus first our email discussion on the specific role of SMIL in the
financial scenario...what do we want to control, how should it be
activated, what other elements on the page (non-SMIL) should be driven in
turn by SMIL?  Note that we so far have only the expense list and pie chart
so feel free to invent/suggest new elements of the scenario.

Jack...can you kick things off?  I've talked about using SMIL for a wizard
controller that could configure the import of a new back-end datasource.
There might be a few tabs required to specify the URL for a web service,
select among available fields for display, and map them to the canonical
fields used to roll-up expenses across accounts.

Does this make sense?  Is there a simpler example to start with perhaps in
the current page...screenshot attached.
