The things I found myself wanting:

 + I wanted to know why some elements were excluded.  What
   constraints were filtering which plants?  Basically: why
   did my final group represent only a fraction of my available
   plants?  I wanted reporting data that I could see and play
 + I wanted a constraint library.  stuff like "require one of
   a set to have a property with value foo." and "require every
   element of this set to have the property value foo."  But also
   "ensure 4 out of 5 property values are present."  I can see
   myself developing this library if I use amb more.
 + I wanted to compare runs when I had different constraints.  I'm
   confused on what exactly I want to compare: mostly I think I
   want to store the output along with the set of constraints in
   a notebook so I can refer to previous explorations.

Any work I do here is pretty likely to be specific to my problem
domain (plants), but perhaps something general would emerge.

You've probably never heard of the ecologist, he's pretty obscure
(hehe, I think it's a student at my local uni, but I'm not sure,
we haven't met in real life.)
