    One PDL per UPDF.

    While UPDF may seem to be lagging in development and adoption, I still
    think it is a powerful idea. I'm afraid the complexity of simultaneously
    addressing multiple PDLs might keep things from ever getting off the

    We never finally decided whether we will allow exactly one PDL per UPDF
    description or more.
    I put that on vote.
    Please send your vote this week.
    We will decide on Friday, March 30th, late afternoon.
    My personal vote is one PDL only.
    Don't move more information around than you need.
    Editing of XML files is easier, when there are parrallel files (master
    description, command sequences, locales, etc.) instead of editing
    different sections in very different areas of one huge file.
    Development is possible in steps done by different groups, while one huge
    description probably never gets done.
