Hey Jeff (and anyone else who is interested);
    I just wanted to let you know my coding plans for this upcoming 
weekend because I'd like to try and coordinate front development along 
with what I'm doing so we can get it implemented and test it out. 
    As I mentioned, I've pulled myself out of the GUI comletely so 
that I won't be interfering there any more :-) As a result this has 
led me to start thinking about how to implement stuff xml-wise and not 
gui-wise, so I could use your input.
    Specifically what I'm blathering about is that I've just about 
(keeping my fingers crossed here!) got a generalized loci 
disconnection communication protocol finished (and partly implemented 
in the GUI, but only during deletion of loci, and I have not thought 
about providing a way for generalized disconnecting of loci). This 
weekend I'm hoping to tackle persistance/saving of loci in the 
back/private directory and, if I am really lucky, start thinking about 
how to try to whip up a connection diagram into a good XML 
representation (of course, we have to work the basis of this out with 
the other vsh guys). Do you have ideas about how these things should 
work in the GUI? I'll need the GUI to test things out and make sure 
I'm implementing them properly, and just thought we could try and 
coordinate stuff and get this all working beautifully as soon as we 
    What do you think? What are your plans?
