That's nice ... but, could we perhaps start with a problem statement
before the proposed solution ? I.e., what would this do that we want
to do but can't or can only do with undesirable consequences ?

There are lots of elegant or at least interesting solutions out there,
many of them desperately waiting for a problem. The difficulty is
finding the few we actually have a use for ;-)
