I started a discussion page on the Trac for design ideas etc. about  
modular optimization.  Right now I am just adding questions I have  
about things.  As it becomes more coherent, we can bring these  
questions/ideas to the list for comments.

ModularOptimization

P.S. What is the best way to share code ideas on the wiki?  Small  
bits work well inline, but for larger chunks it would be nice to be  
able to attach files.  Unfortunately none of the wiki's deals well  
with attached files (no versioning and sometimes no way of modifying  
the file).
