Hi Guys,

A little behind on my emails so I didn't see Colin's post yesterday and 
the subsequent follow up.

It looks like Paul has volunteered to do some wiki gardening on the 
Walkthrough protocol and checklist (thanks Paul!).

I'm going to be working on the DnD design pattern today, but I could use 
a second set of eyes to go over it. I'm particularly interested in what 
changes we might need to make to it so that it fits more closely with 
the Lightbox/Reorderer component.
