Were getting tons of help from the Blink team, too! This touches too many parts of the rendering engine to be a one-person jobwere coordinating on what parts are best left to the experts on Blinks internals, and what parts are best left to the experts on the `picture` specification. Yoav may be taking point, but its going to be a collaborative effort all the way through.

Were going to be doing weekly Hangouts to coordinate efforts; Im hoping we can post those publicly, too, so everyone can stay caught up on the progress.
