Thanks for all input. This week, we should finish our initial planning phase and start implementing a few things. We'll have more time then to read code than it was the case before. I hope we'll have some spare time to organize all information into one document so it can serve as a reference. Most likely, it will be a copy&paste-thing gathering the answers we got here. I'll post a link once we have something ready.
