Probably best to close both threads, start a new one in dev and link to it from both. One official thread now that the idea has come to this stage.
Thanks kindly for the suggestion, both. I don't frequent dev much, but that does seem to be the most logically choice. I will do that in a couple hours, for I'm tied up at the moment. The last couple of hours I've been putting some more thought into this project and believe I may have a solution as to how and what direction to take this endeavor. Don't worry! It doesn't involve an imaginary alpaca.
