"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

A Little Behind The Curve *

First promised advocated for approximately three years ago, then back in the news again nine months later, it appears to have finally come into being earlier this month.

And just in case you're not familiar, here's everything you might ever want to know about the how and why of a 211 system.
