I'm actually perfectly happy to merge your SCM layer too eventually, but
I'm nervous at this point. Especially while people are discussing some
SCM options that I'm personally very leery of, and think that may make
sense for others, but that I personally distrust.

I'm really really hoping I'd use cogito, and that it ends up being just
one project. In particular, I'm hoping that in a few days, I'll have done
enough plumbing that I don't even care any more, and then I'd not even
maintain a tree of my own.
I'm really not that much of an SCM guy. I detest pretty much all SCM's out
there, and while it's been interesting to do 'git', I've done it because I
was forced to, and because I really wanted to put _my_ needs and opinions
first in an SCM, and see how that works. That's why I've been so adamant
about having a "philosophy", because otherwise I'd probably just end up
with yet another SCM that I'd despise.
So for me, the "optimal" situation really ends up that you guys end up as
the maintainers. I don't even _want_ to maintain it, although I'd be more
than happy to be part of the engineering team. I just want to mark out the
direction well enough and get it to a point where I can _use_ it, that I
feel like I'm done.
But before I can do that, I need to feel like I can live with the end
result. The only missing part is merges, and I think you and Junio are
getting pretty close (with Daniel's parent finder, Junio's merger etc).
