RE: (FC-Devel) Project direction (was lots of threads)

Actually, could we get wrappers around other things,
like DIA?  we could then focus on the interface issues
and integration, and not on problems like graph tool design,

Does it make sense to place a CORBA layer over CVS for the initial pass?
This way we get versioning while still coding to the interface so that
could switch CVS to something else if it makes sense.
