Steve, this is a good spot to bring up Flux. The soup greens project, flux, and the Ian/Shamal project are plumbing related (but not the same) ground. It’ll be interesting to see what parts overlap and what parts are complementary.
Is there a white paper that I can print out? I’d like to sit down with a cup of coffee and study the whole thing, and I’m not finding unified docs at http://www.flux.com/-/product
