I can't let this pass - yes, there is a commitment to bonobo - and I have
not seen anybody dispute it. This is not the same as saying that whatever
comes along having bonobo in the name or happens to use bonobo is
therefore the correct answer. 

This does not follow. It is possible to have both good and bad bonobo
apis, but the xistsence of such or ackowleging the possibility is not the
same as sayoing bonobo the framework is bad.
