This seems like a solid start, but there are unresolved questions about both high level goals (versioning strategy etc) and also some technical details with this WIP patch. It looks like several people have an interest and ideas in this area, but clearly there isn't going to be a committable patch in the next 48 hours. So I will set this to 'Returned with Feedback' for now. If you think you'll have a new patch for the next CF then it looks like you can still 'Move to Next CF' from 'Returned with Feedback' state if appropriate.
