That seems reasonable to me.  I just didn't want our list to become endless
discussion withour actual development of software.  My problem is that
although this list has been public for just 9 days, we have been talking
about educational software here at SEUL for 3-4 weeks now.  In most of your
eyes I'm sure that we're just getting started, so there isn't yet a reason to
 subdivide the list.  If we do get specific development efforts going to the
extent that they are essentially running on separate threads within the
seul-edu list, we can then set them up with their own mailing lists as
sub-projects.  We have the resources to do that whenever necessary.  As Roger
 said, if any of you want to work privately on one or another of the ideas
mentioned here, please feel free to.  But if you do, would you let us know
how you're doing by posting updates to the list?
