We should continue to come up with ideas for what the features should
be, and then find what software on Linux best fills each need.
If none for a specific feature,then we decide whether to develop it
from scratch.
If so, figure out if we can modify the software to incorporate cleanly
into "the system".

We should aim to make transitions from separate pieces of software as
smooth as possible.
