Yes.  (At least most of the answers sounded affirmative to me.)

Oh, and one more issue that I forgot earlier -- the plan was to

make it possible to have better planet integration, and to be able to
migrate bugs between the two).  This means that Sam should also
consider that as part of the effort that is required.
