I'd like for those who are going to do the actual work to stand up and
be counted before an IRC meeting. This is starting to feel bike-sheddy
and the answer to bike-shedding is not more meetings.

I am keenly interested in this, but have limited cycles to spare for it
at this time. So I do not count myself as one of those people.

I believe that a few individuals who are involved with already working
specialized agents will be doing the work to consolidate them and to fix
the bug that they all share (Heat shares this too) which is that private
networks cannot reach their respective agent endpoints. I think those
individuals should review the original spec given the new information,
revise it, and present it here in a new thread. If there are enough of
them that they feel they should have a meeting, I suggest they organize
one. But I do not think we need more discussion on a broad scale.

Speaking of that, before I run out and report a bug that affects
Savanna Heat and Trove, is there already a bug titled something like
"Guests cannot reach [Heat/Savanna/Trove] endpoints from inside private
networks." ?

(BTW, paint it yellow!)
