I think Alex would be the layout-and-style dude since that is where most 
of his work is concentrating on. Perhaps he can work closer with 
Matthew, who's working on the new XML?

Not everything has to be on the roadmap, although it would certainly 
help. Alex, what kind of changes do you want to work on? Perhaps it's 
more productive to discuss them now, reach consensus (I think Bill 
suggested a 66% majority) and put them on the roadmap? That way you can 
work on the items in your own speed and commit them without these long
