Right, however none of those projects so far have real world, directly
comparable, experiences to share. JMC for one is still running on
mercurial and will only transition to GitHub for the 8.0 release
train, which isn't yet even open.

I think we really need to get back to this proposal in an year or two
when we understand more of the implications.
