I am working on an EEP for a mechanism. It is not yet ready for public
consumption, but if you're curious, grab scutil from http://scutil.com/ and
look in /erl/eep/ . I'm hoping to have significant content within the next
several days. Right now it's just boilerplate and justification; the
technical stuff should start going in after work today or tomorrow.
