At UDS Q we discussed getting upstart into the desktop, which I think is
critical for a lot of these.  Most of them are basically file watches
and other events that upstart could do for us.  I don't believe that
happened in the Q cycle, do we think that we could get upstart
underneath things with some new events in R?  I'd love to see that.
Curious how we should plan sessions based on that, it seems that the
upstart sessions and these would be co-dependent.
