Honestly, dev on the launchpad blueprints feature stalled quite a while
ago, and I think the trello interest shows that there are, in fact, some
deficiencies that should be sorted out. Kurt gave some great feedback
the other day, and we've been collecting more and more of that
informally over drinks at bars with folks.

We've been trying to not open up too many big tooling cans of worms, and
I think that's been working so far - which is one of the reasons we
didn't do a summit session on the topic. BUT - we may be reaching
critical mass where we need to look more deeply into options.

I'll write up the things we've collected so far and publish them to a
wiki/blueprint so that we can start a proper conversation on the topic.
