Nothing happened because there wasn't manpower enough to do the job,
IIRC.  I remember there being discussions about the exact API we need to
provide, but that also requires manpower to research.

(XPath wasn't all that successfully collapsed; I think there have been
some complaints about the exact API we provide, but that, again,
requires more research.  And I might be misremembering.)

> Do you need some volunteer to put work into this?

Absolutely.  Feel free to study and submit a proposal.  Expect this to
take 10x more time than you initially think, just in discussions.
