Thank you too both bapt and gjb. This is a non-trivial effort to
achieve and what's been done so far is a really good first milestone.

I think it's a good idea to get beta feedback for 11.x... It'll allow
the design to get a wider audience and allows it to get some runtime
beyond CURRENT, that way it can mature and improve before too many of
the pieces are put in a place that it'll be hard to change once things
have been setup in a production way.

Thank you again!
