Not really I think. You write your stories you like to fulfil and then
implement them. If the design needs to be changed to implement another story
you have to do it for the next story.

No, please not more administration overhead. We already have to incorporate
a test framework. If we really need some kind of task tracking feature we
can use the sourceforge.net possibilities.

Andrew: What do you think should/could be done first for starting with your
code base? Have you already some test cases? If not I would say we first
choose a test framework and add test cases for the already existing code.
