Well, that's a possible (and likely) technical implementation of a principle.
As such it is secondary to the principle: we could do the multiple
distributions trick right now.

I was more referring to extending the current focus of to be a bit
more portal-like: a well-maintained collection of information pointing to the
various distributions, documentation, related projects, etcetera. Plus room
for individual developers to do their thang (actually a lot like,
which I really like and I could set it up in a matter of hours).
