"planning stories" into the general mix. THis allows us to focus the resources necessary to
develop a set of stories that may stretch out over a longer period of time. THese stories
become part of the backlog, and are prioritized and picked up in subsequent releases.
Unfortunately due to the technical nature of the product, it's effectively impossible for a
"customer" to just pick up a blank piece of paper and write enough information on it in order
for us to provide a credible estimate. So a bit of work (10 to 15 hours for a group of related
stories) may be necessary in order to get them on the backlog.
