it was a one-line email, one simple question, so i don't know.
i think the best thing we can do now is come up with some grand schemes, and 
present them. we can work out the details later; the libraries can be very 
flexible if they want to be. for instance, in our dicsussions on maker spaces in 
libraries, i have already advanced the idea of a lathe, more to gauge reactions
than anything, and they weren't anti the idea.

meet, but first we need ideas and suggestions from more people.
