Would it work for you if we started a separate sandbox where people
can put their prototype code up for review? That way we could keep the
trunk "clean" and only move code there when we have a good consensus
on the design.

At least I find it much easier to work on stuff that I can actually
checkout, build, and track changes on. Also, even though we don't yet
have the final interfaces and overall architecture in place, once the
code is in svn we can start parallel efforts in for example comparing
different parser libraries, setting up test suites, etc.
