Yes. We should probably centralize this through a document stored in
SVN. It is hard to do that only through the mailing list.

I haven't found anything better.

That depends on what requirements we agree on.

Yes, otherwise it is pointless. I think everybody agrees with the
general idea. Where people disagree is where we should stop sharing

That sounds good. Note that I won't be able to work on this from July
23rd to the deadline. But we can work on the paper in parallel with the
implementation phase.
