Hello John, Schuyler, ka-map people, and all,

It is great to hear you guys are taking the initiative to move your 
projects closer together.  I think these sort of merges will benefit 
both communities greatly as you are likely to double your developer base 
and more than double your user base.

I am indeed interested to see how we can weave Mapbuilder into your 
application.  I'd love to see all the AJAX webmapping developers 
building and extending the same codebase rather than extending lots of 
smaller ones as we are doing now.

I missed the IRC (bit late for me).  Does someone have logs?  And is 
there design discussions going on somewhere?  If so what list?  If not, 
maybe we should use this webmap-discuss list.  (It was set up to discuss 
cross project integration like this).

I've heard mention (below) that you are considering using Prototype.  I 
think building upon an AJAX framework is a great idea.  What interests 
me is why Prototype?  The other contender I see is Dojo which seems to 
be well thought out and have a very strong community behind it.
