Hum hum... interesting pretty big wish list for Christmas. I don't  
know what santas' got in store for you.... Well it will mostly be an  
iterative process, since it'd be easy to break things apart if we  
rush this. We'll need to start polishing the MainUI and create the  
few templates. In parallel, get Dana and Benjamin to clean up the CSS  
and create some designs... Have Martin create the artwork for ISF  
(new logo and color scheme). Basically that first part will simply  
take the same content that we have now, laying it in such a way that  
it's easier for us to work. Then we can start thinking about the  
tabs, how we should regroup contents etc... Improve the content  
management (back-end). Finally we'll think about the sub-domain  
think, but that might be a pain in the ass to implement cleanly in
