Is this available yet?

So we need to decide on both some milestones and also what various 
people ought to work on so we avoid stepping on each other's toes.

It seems like a natural way to keep some of our work disjoint is to have 
us primarily work on the back end and Sathyanarayanan on the front end, 
or vice-versa.  Sathyanarayanan, does this sound reasonable to you?  Do 
you have a preference?  It sounds like you're already working on the 
front end, though I was hoping we'd have a chance to play with and learn 
twisted ourselves a bit.
