As we are waiting for a working demo for long and want to have a

Erich and Marc,
I understand your apprehension on rushing into things, however I think
the discussion that are going on currently are very constructive and I
think we are rapidly building a better understanding of both the
technical and UI requirements (I am updating the WIKI page when I have
As for rushing into a Drupal implementation, I think if you talk to
most Drupal developers they find that rapid prototyping works
incredibly well with Drupal as it takes almost no time to setup a very
