First, hello everyone! I really like this site. It seems to be a great
beginning (the beginning is always the hard part) for really sharp core

Anyway, I wonder if there would be a place for experimental/unpolished
ideas and snippets for people to look at and improve, possibly one day
being put into an actual library. I have *many* such things that I think
could be of use, but they don't (currently) have an audience. For some
reason, posting them to a newsgroup just doesn't seem appropriate, as
there's no common goal - just discussion.

What I'd really like is to be able to get together with everyone
face-to-face and discuss and implement libraries as a group, but this is
the internet :-(

Back to lurking...
