Ok .. I have a draft for mounting blocks


Think I have the main points downs.. I'll leave it for a week and see. 
Then I'll do the RFC thing and see what happens..

Not certain about the voting method to determine the key.. if it then 
requires a secondary vote for the key/value pair.

Whatever .. you all get to have a vote. Whatever is most popular I'll 
put on the riding page. If it passes then that will go on to the wiki.
