Here is a proposed scheme for interchanges that a few of us developed  
from Oxomoa's page with the main difference being that it is in the  
public wiki space so that other people can work on it (Oxoma's scheme  
remains in his private space where etiquette says ut should not be  
edited by others)

Should we put this one to a vote and work up something that we can  
agree on that is on the proper wiki?
