Which was a large project based upon merging existing large projects and done
for the first time. It has complex dependancies and politics.

Thats a bit like saying "Well concorde was hard so my paper aeroplane will
take five years to fold"

I've been in the Free Software world for a fair number of years and I will
say this - there are the people who say it is too hard/costs too much/can't be
done and there are the people who just do it anyway. Do you think Linux would
exist if Linus had started from a costing analysis for MS Windows or 4BSD ?

Just do it, the rest will fall into place if there is any interest.
