You suspect wrong. Sorry. Indeed, I already said as much about the
current system, and it's scalability.

Since this is a WIP, how about taking it to a specific mailing list
that is not related to how things currently operate. I read ports@
for one reason, and one reason only, to keep abreast of potential
issues with the *current* system.
It's not hard to set up a mailing list. Hell, I'll even host it
myself if that's what it takes, but as things stand, ports@ (or,
indeed, any other exising mailing list) is not the right place to be
discussing concepts that are, fluid.
