This is not about a code merge, this is about how we will support
users who use this stuff.  If we want to do this, we need to
have a centralized support system/mailing lists, instead of the
currently very segmented local support systems.

I would have no objections if we can figure out a way to support
this in a bug reporting system, mailing lists.  But I agree you
are right, we could use this in 4.x.  Perhaps I did not
think this one thoroughly.
