Is there some code of the interface we can discuss?  I'm more than happy to
provide input, requirements, etc.  I'll contribute code where I can 
(management decision there, but I'm pretty sure I can sell it).

If there's something that's been used for simple things now, let's get it 
checked in and start refining it.
