	Please forward to the LGDC. Apprently, the Mediaone-ORBS thing won't get
fixed any time soon.

	Ah, but the key question is, will it rest in the LGDC or in PenguinPlay?

	I did think of this early on (I'm sure it's archived!) but the idea was
poo-pooed because of the fear of creeping feature sets and the ability of a
few to track this reliably. I, myself, thought that SDK authors should be
able to list their SDK and specify the feature set via PHP on the site. I
had a (general) design where a table contained all the known features and
another the SDKs and a many-to-many (which is essentially what you have with
SDK and features in a db) could be established via a key table.

	Yes, I also wish MySQL had subselects...
