I agree with that.

We will eventually...  but it may be too soon just yet to fret about
those details.

These are the same lines I was thinking along.

I concur.

I suspect any detailed discussion we have now about the implementation
of this stuff will get lost in the mists of time before we are ready
to actually implement a feedback system.  We'll have to discuss it
again in any case once we're closer to being ready to implement it
(i.e., once we have user login in place, and a repository architecture
in place for storing the feedback and comments and stuff).

I don't think I can squeeze that into my budget.  IIRC you live in
Southern California, so your monthly living expenses are probably a
good deal more than my monthly income.  (I live in small-town Ohio,
and the cost of living is rather lower here.)
