I think calling it "product supporters" is very helpful.  It indicates
to me that you only expect a relatively small group of people to have
this role.

This is a good idea.  Instead of focusing on getting the last 2% of 
layout, we need to take the next step and get it working.

There will be time later for the finishing touches.  Perhaps after 
launch. :^)

Ahh, this is a good point.  Some of you have been itching for a 
bite-sized project.  This is a good one.  Simply grab the latest CMF 
(1.3 beta) and hack the UI for discussability.  I can help some of you 
walk through it if you are interested.
