Sorry Stephen, I have been intending to write something up for you--not
enough hours in the day--but until then there's a page on the Swiki called

"A guide for refactoring the image" (partial, but with info on what can be
outloaded right now)

and another called

"Modules: What to do next"

plus a few more pages that should be helpful. The latter page holds to-do
items that are up for picking. This should obviously be complemented with a
"done items" page listing what works. But basically the test cases should be
the benchmark of what should work, anything else is a bonus ;-)

The new class comments were also posted with you in mind.

Our week in Bern (29/4-3/5) comes just before yours (3-5/5). I will
definitely take time then to write down better instructions for refactoring,
and then we'll also have a chance to "pass on" whatever results or
conclusions we reach.
