Sovereignty over the codebase for one.  At this point I don't see why people
are so concerned with the (lack of) alignment with Chemistry. If the people
who wish to work on this proposal prefer to go it alone for the time being,
so be it.  If a community doesn't emerge out of one project or the other,
it's an easier decision to make at that time then it is to predict in advance
right now.
