I actually was that BoF and while I'd like to say I remember specific  
LTs at this point, I don't. noob overload probably.

Actually if you write up the docs and document the formats needed, I  
like to see that spark a discussion here. I know Titus is in favor of  
simplest-thing-that-could-possibly work, so I suspect that will be  
Pass/Fail. Personally I prefer to hard-coded valus even in simple  
systems. (The simplest code I know how to write is always "table- 
driven" and usually doesn't need to know or care about specific values.)

Looking forward to seeing what you are able to "release".
