I have browsed through the wiki and knew what's in there. There is not 
much reasons in there and not much discussions in there. I have been 
following this list for at least a year and can't recall any thorough 
discussion on these (they probably happened in IRC) and many if not 
most of the points are made based on the nALFS codebase.

I for one, am not clear what is the guiding priciples behind those 
wiki bits and all the contents in the wiki is not enough to plot nALFS 
yet. Do you guys like to talk it more here? 

First question: what's the function of frontend and what's the 
function of backend?
