Hi Mike,

Thank you for catching this. This topic was discussed during the September
PTG and it was agreed that: "The OVO sub-team has accepted to also continue
the adoption of the new engine facade (
since both efforts work in the DB layer and entail traversing the code
looking for opportunities of adoption" [1]. Unfortunately, we lost members
of the OVO sub-team, to the point that the weekly meeting was recently
removed [2]. As a consequence, this will be my personal goal for the Train
cycle. I have restored the two patches that you pointed out and I'll
re-start the effort from there [3][4]. I am also adding this topic to the
discussion during the upcoming PTG.
