I was going to mention the (hypothetical) possibility of dedicating an
unstable dev branch for something like this--one whose sole purpose is
interoperability (maybe even MAMP and WAMP). If it struggles to progress,
not all is lost.

And if more developers are needed, take the Slashdot (subculture) approach:
1. Get pile of dirty underwear (for rinsing)

3. Somewhere up north, code makes programmer
