Wise words. A lot of the talk flying around certainly has the smell of
complexity attached to it. That is often an unfortunate consequence of
"design by comittee". I too would advise trying very hard to keep things
simple at the early stages - complexity will creep in all too quickly,
despite any attempts to stamp it out.
