I would like to take this moment to suggest force-field file versioning in any case.

This can wait (or be ignored), but it t has always bothered me that the contents of the files might silently change.

Here's our system:
Briefly: new letter = new function; new number = fixed error. Letters contain all changes for the previous letter.

Otherwise, I like the general direction of the discussion, so I don't have a lot more to add.
