However, seeing as the current version is very popular, I'd like to consider some alternative approaches - remembering of course that we will still prefer to use simple components in order to get closer to verifiability.
"More sources" and "different sources" seems to be the common theme, and I'd be happy to see what we can do to get there, once the current version is done.
