Lets get Scan organised first, then worry about the extended stuff :)
OTOH, I think that file/record management is not something which we should
concern SRW/U with. Then we need to get into authentication and such like

If someone wants to propose a system to work -in conjunction with- SRW/U
then we should certainly link to their project from the home page though.
