 +====== EMF as a model description language ======
 +As described below, the model used by the Visual Editor Project is
 +based on its own language and widget-set neutral metadata format. As
 +it turns out, this model itself is described using Eclipse'​s own EMF framework.
 +Advantages to doing it this way include:
 +    * EMF is language and widget-set neutral.
 +    * It is easy to reflect the metadata provided by the Java
 +      Development Tooling as an EMF model.
 +Questions I currently have about this:
 +    * What are the parts of the model?
 +    * What are the sources/​sinks of information in this model?
 +    * How does one actually work with information in this model?
 +In future entries, I intend to explore these and other topics
 +relevent to VEP programming.
