This is the next gen folks. And you tried it for a reason before it
turned into an essential thing you don't want to go back from. For

Its a different branch of developers you attract at the current point in time.
In 5 yrs things will look different.

I just question if ASF wants that. The cool kids (sorry, "essential
distributed scm kids") can come to OPS4J ;)
