Indeed, I think it would help.

While I'm here, and for the records, I think that creating a new
workflow 'temporarily' only until we have Storyboard usable, is a *huge*
mistake. It seems to me that you're ignoring or at least underestimating
the amount of *people* that will need to be retrained, the amount of
documentation that need to be fixed/adjusted. And the confusion that
this will create on the 'long tail' developers.

A change like this, done with a couple of announcements on a mailing
list and a few mentions on IRC is not enough to steer the ~400
developers who may be affected by this change. And then we'll have to
manage the change again when we switch to Storyboard. If I were you, I'd
focus on getting storyboard ready to use asap, instead.

There, I said it, and I'm now going back to my cave.
