This is one sentence fragment based on my impression of the Workstation
working group's intent to use this feature to create their ideal
development environment.  I recall dev servers being cited as use cases as

is described in the RNs, I'm tempted to change it just to end the stop
energy put into what *could be* a productive discussion.
