Sure, but to be really useful the discussion on mapserver-users should 
come with an intro to the syntax or perhaps even a draft RFC to serve as 
a base for discussion as most users don't know what Scribe is about.

Actually, there is a good intro at 
http://scribeui.org/scribe-syntax.html so we could possibly use that to 
start a discussion. Do you want to start the discussion on the users list?
