A note about scheduling: We've got just over 4 weeks until F10 Feature
Freeze and you haven't even *started*. This is a big change and it's
going to take a lot of changes across the entire distro - I'm really
doubtful that it could be done properly that soon. 

The good news is that F11 development branches in a mere 12 weeks (or
so).

I think people would have been a lot more receptive if you had been
planning to land your changes then. Otherwise you end up hearing the
stock Fedora response for people who want to make massively invasive
changes without really talking to anyone first: "Yeah, that's great, let
us know when you're done."

It's not that anyone thinks these changes are a bad idea - I'm actually
fairly excited about the possibilities here. But from what I've heard of
the plans so far, it'd be a really bad idea to try to force it in for
F10.
