I like this use case format (Thanks Justin Hutchings). I submit the next
two, for Cloud and/or IPP Everywhere.  They were observed at a nursing
conference  I am currently at  (with my wife. I haven't changed careers yet)
and they are very real and I suspect, not uncommon. Current solutions were
inconvenient and time consuming, and the output was not completely
satisfactory,
