It's built on top of the framework as plugins, so it could be separated
logically, but it'd include a bunch of Drupal anyway. Organisationally
they're getting closer, the latest CivicSpace stuff is not a branch of
Drupal, just a bunch of plugins on top of 4.6, which helps both projects.

It *may* fit in with other plans, and if anything, using it for this would
encourage it. But I'll push back against random too. :-)
