I can expand on the dynamic checker stuff as discussed on the email,
but I'm not that convinced this is a good SoC project either.

I tend to mention that it's a successor organization and isn't 
really "brand new" just a year ago - this work has been going
on for a long time.  Don't know if that matters for the application
or not.  I will say for Questions 5/6, just for your information,
that /FSG/ did apply in a past year, but was not accepted for a
funded project. It wasn't last year, perhaps the year before.

and specification is GFDL.
