Hi Herve,

Thanks a lot for your enthusiasm, volunteering, and all.

I very much agree that it's too late for Xena, though I wasn't even
hoping for it that early. This was merely a suggestion.

I will try to get my co-maintainer (Michal Arbet) in the loop so we can
at least design the blue-print together. I also have to give this some
thoughts myself before I can start.
