Subject Re: photo gallery software (previously called Caitrin)

All doubts on Sling have gone out the window.  I will update the 
proposal accordingly.

I don't mind the idea of working with the Sling project at all.  I am 
most interested in the problem space.  For the moment I will continue 
updating the proposal.  Even if it doesn't become its very own 
project, having the proposal written will still provide a good road 
map as we start to move the project forward.
