It is extremely important, though not urgent, if that makes sense? We
should make sure we do it right, but it is one of the most important
projects the community faces- arguably much more important than our
actual releases at this point (since they are very much in an
evolutionary and not revolutionary mode at this time.)

I would suggest that the best thing the board could do in this case,
Quim, is appoint a leader and a small team and say 'this is your
interest/issue/area of expertise, we bless your solution assuming you
do not go completely insane.'  That is what I would advise, anyway.
