Some components will be written from the scratch (like the Data Access 
Component) others will likely be started from the scratch but then 
filled or connected with code from the TYPO3 4.x branch (code 
recycling). I propose that we try to recycle as much code as possible to 
get started more quickly and then refactor it.

About the coding guidelines: The goal is to build a TYPO3 version which 
is as intuitive as possible for the developer. Imagine you have to 
create a variable which contains something like a title - then you have 
to decide if you call it "title", "label", "description", ... whatever. 
It would help a lot if everywhere in TYPO3 the same names are used for 
the same items, maybe a glossary is a good solution to enforce that.

Anyway, it won't be possible to have a clean 5.0 from the start - but at 
least we have to define the direction.
