Yep, I get it.  I'm just worried about focus and scope right now.

One of the things I continue to wrestle with is where the boundary
should be between "the Freedombox" as envisioned by Eben, et al, that I
hope we can emit a reference implementation of in the coming
weeks... and all the cool things that can and should be done around,
above, and beyond that core.

Of course.

With respect to architecture, nothing should preclude virtualization or
containers, but I don't believe they should be a requirement either.

With respect to user interface, when Eben articulates the work of the
Foundation he defines it in terms of four pillars, one of which is user
experience.  Eventually we will find the right person to organize and
lead that activity, but in the meantime, I intend to focus on
functionality that we can glue behind whatever facade our user
experience experts eventually choose.
