I'd prefer that people have something stable to review during a
comment period so they're not chasing a moving target. (Is that a
mixed metaphor?) If possible, let's get this review of what Mongoose
has done out of the way and then start the comment period. We could do
this for all of Mongoose's published books, or just 1-7 for now. I'd
prefer to just get it all done.
