I think positions like this would be extremely good and beneficial
for the development of KDE and its apps.

And Waldo's assessment of the tasks to be covered and the skills
required hits the nail on its head.

The "white paper" of Carlos was a very good initiative. Let's put
some action behind it.

Also, it would pay if we were able to have a session/workshop on this
during our 2004 Conference.
