Well, I was trying to stimulate the generation of use cases, so we can
figure out what the various transports are USED for and what we need to do
with them.  Use cases will show us the various pitfalls.

I posted a few to try to get things going, but it's been dead around here.

I'm probably coming off as a demanding, whiny, prick, but I seriously get
EXCITED about GMPI and these debates.  Every night I go to bed thinking
"When I wake up, there will be 20 emails for me to read, digest and respond
to".  I keep thinking that we're "almost done" with reqs.  Then I wake up
and nothing.

It's been DAYS since I tried the use-cases approach.  Nothing.  This topic
started with a flurry of smart people saying and proposing REALLY smart
things.  Now we need to suss out which concepts make sense and which don't.
I can't do it myself, and apparently I can';t extract information from you
all by sheer force of will.

So I'm begging, if you have any interest in seeing GMPI succeed, please find
the time.  At this point, I'm so GMPI-deprived that I'd be happy for Vincent
to drop in and insult me again. :)

Otherwise we can just do it the VST way and call it "good enough". :(
