No. I suspect it's just another unverified press highlight, triggered by
references to our ongoing efforts toward federation in general. Don't
underestimate the capacity of the press to report things slightly wrong
and highlight dubious things into click-worthy titles.

I suspect (and hope) Joshua was just commenting on your work, rather
than talking about some private Piston effort that would duplicate open
work and that even I don't know about :)
