Well, I can speak only for myself here... I've been reluctant to promote
this "too soon"... meaning, I don't really want the whole world
following this until we make some actual progress on the codebase.  But
maybe that's the wrong approach... if you can convince me that I'm being
too conservative, I'll be happy to take a more proactive public approach.

I don't think this is the issue... at least it isn't for me.
