The core mission of what I'm shooting for with nitro will be published here
by the end of next week.  I will also be bringing in some short term goals,
long term goals and a roadmap for nitro.  I hope this will clear up the
ramaze v/s nitro debate and/or create some discussion as to what options we
have.  If ramaze meets up to what I'm looking for, maybe I will let nitro go
back to sleep.
