I think this is a good idea as well. The vine originator would need to 
add the vine to the database. How about a couple more fields - date
received and date sent?

So each person on the vine would update their entry to show date
received/date sent, so its easy to track the vine progress.

We would probably still need to send email to the list with progress
reports. It should keep the list in order though. Still would be a
radical change and I don't think we should do it unless everyone (or
at least a large majority) thinks it's a good idea.

participants on the website? It should eliminate the getting out of
order problem. The list of participants would be stationary instead of
traveling with each email and running the risk of becoming mangled. We
could make a database for each vine. Check out the example I made here.
