Ideally, we'll eventually converge on a single workflow and can take
it from there. Once it's become a de-factor standard, everyone will
sooner or later find out. I just think there is no need to involve
everyone in the design stage, since many of us "just" maintain
packages and don't have the time to follow and try out every single
