Re: Bug#97755: [PROPOSAL] eliminating task packages; new task system


        Should we not wait until we have a working system before we
 write this down in stone? It seems likely that we shall have design
 tweaks as we work through implementing this, and once the design and
 the interfaces have stabilized would be the time to propose this as
 policy.  This is in line with the notion that policy documents
 current practice.

	Mind you, I like the proposal, and were it not for the issue
 of timing, I would probably have seconded this.

 It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what
 they seem.  For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed
 that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so
 much -- the wheel, New York, wars and so on -- whilst all the
 dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good
 time.  But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they
 were far more intelligent than man -- for precisely the same reasons.
 Curiously enough, the dolphins had long known of the impending
 destruction of the of the planet Earth and had made many attempts to
 alert mankind to the danger; but most of their communications were
 misinterpreted ... Douglas Admas "The Hitchhikers' Guide To The
