not at all, thanks for bringing them up. there are certainly weak
parts in the proposal, and we are glad for feedback so that we can make
a better case :)

for instance, there was a discussion whether refactoring should happen
before we move the code to apache. our initial plan was to submit the
code to apache when it reaches 1.0. we are currently cleaning up the
codebase to make it more consistent, and hopefully easier to get into
for others. (avoiding ridicule over some of the code plays a role too :))

the refactoring wont be too extensive, and we are trying not to hard code
the future direction (to learn from the xindice example). maybe we should
call it spit and polish, but refactoring definitely sounded better on
the roadmap :)
