|News and other Cruft

So, I've finally started writing docs up on what I think Y will be, what it is currently, etc, etc.
Some of the documentation below is a little thin. I've got lots of ideas in my head about how things should be architected, and I'm really trying to get them all down, but I'll miss some. If anything seems blatantly wrong, something needs clarification, or you have a suggestion or idea of your own, send me mail.
I'll see what I can do about gathering up a .tar file for the Y stuff, so people can start playing around with it.
