It does seem that while a bug report may have spured this discussion ( a
good one may I add ) it would be a better idea to try to split the
points made here into seperate discussion/projects/blueprints. Launchpad
has the ability to create sub projects so I'd like to see at least some
of these issues put in a place where people can contribute and bring
them forward, there are certainly dicussion points on this thread that
have been in my head for a while as well as pointing focus at
alternatives and additional sub issues.
