Yes, that's always been my plan...  so far mostly bits of #2 and #3 are 
implemented, but there are stubs for #1 and plans/proposals/ideas for 
just about everything else...  I keep meaning to write down more of my 
plans and ideas, but I don't feel pressured to do so because thus far 
the only contributor to the project is me.
