As discussed in previous IRC meetings, this is not blocked by new ideas 
with extensions. We've decided there's a lot involved with the changes 
that it didn't make sense to block progress of others. Zhi, I've spoke 
to you personally about how you can continue your work as normal. Feel 
free to reach out to me on IRC user thingee if you need help.
