Thanks for the pointer; I'm not sure that a plug-in framework is a
priority need, but we'll have a look.
Although we ran out of time on Friday to discuss this, Mathieu and I had
some time to discuss afterwards. Please have a look here at some revised
In particular, the Goals section tries to elaborate the broader project

most of the requirements elaborated, so our next steps are to try out
As usual, comments or suggestions would be appreciated. One can see that
there are still some open issues.
