Ok, that sounds reasonable.  I can point one of the guys on core@ at this PR 
actually since he is in .jp and I think he might work with

I understand.  I'm mostly just trying to make a point about what the project 
can or can not do.  I guess the biggest thing is that and aren't very tightly joined, but fairly independent of each
