Here are the "minutes" from our "non-meeting" as it was just Henry,
Vojtech, and myself.  We had an informal discussion while waiting for
a few more to join.  Alas, it was just us and so we ended the call.

14:10:29 [ht]
[informal chat about what the public impact of adding binary data to
XProc might be -- is it really still _X_ Proc
14:10:31 [ht]
14:11:07 [ht]
HST wondering whether there is some way to make this a detachable extra
14:11:17 [ht]
XProc and XProc++
14:11:24 [alexmilowski]
Vojtech: still trying to make it an XML language but make it possible
to handle other media types
14:12:41 [alexmilowski]
Alex: Binding and producing something that is not XML from a pipeline
is a lot of work.
14:13:11 [alexmilowski]
Vojtech: Having to interface with an external program is not user friendly.
14:14:31 [alexmilowski]
Henry: Experience at MT suggested there were a number of applications
where there were difference input/output adapters.
14:15:35 [alexmilowski]
Henry: If we had a resource manager, having a steps that write and
read non-XML ...
14:16:10 [alexmilowski]
Vojtech: There are problems with sequencing when steps do not depend
on each other.
14:19:55 [alexmilowski]
Vojtech: It is mostly a boundary problem.
