The inertia is enormous, and I personally think that only a drastic,
disruptive change of the codebase (i.e. a ver 3.0, similar to what Roy
was talking about @ AC-EU-2008) is necessary to get a (not the)
community going. Existing codebase is too good, noone wants big
changes, people who understand reported bugs are AWOL, and no vision
for the future. My own time has been 'absurd' the last 3-4 months but
is now starting to settle, so after fulfilling my Mentor obligations
with Pivot and Etch, I'll work with Jukka and see what we can achieve
(or not)...
