As Jim points out, their current long term goal is to be a replacement for the
current system views (hence *new* system views), and the current project was
created to facilitate development. What I am thinking is that the project
take on a different goal, mainly that it be an add on that intends to work
along side the current system views and be both backward and forward
compatible (hence *enhanced* system views). It's a subtle difference.
