Ok - although Florent is AFAIK very much involved in Chemistry, in my
Apache book that doesn't count as discussing with the Chemistry
project. What bugged me when seeing your proposal appear here is that
(AFAIK - happy to be corrected if that's wrong) no discussions haven
happened on the Chemistry mailing lists about this.

Ok, that might make sense.

Of course, but having two podlings working on a spec that's still in
flux feels like a waste of energy, as opposed to people collaborating
in the same podling.
