I'm hearing muted support, but no objections, currently. I'd prefer  
to hear more support before we go for this.

I don't think there's yet been any consideration of how we'd pay for  
this - in terms of whether we'd go for bounties, or whatever.

Finally, I don't know what our budget is, quite yet... The XSF has  
some cash we could use, but I'd aim to get some industry cash as well.

I'd note that your plugin in sandbox-side, I assume - that is, it's  
not "in the browser", but "in the webpage", so I'm not sure how  
useful it will be.

I've not stopped to consider licensing questions, personally. I  
generally dislike assignment (it's complex, legally, and gives me  
moral quibbles) and code has well-understood licensing semantics, so  
something along the lines of BSD inbound to the XSF sounds sane to me.

Really, we just need the stuff written, and working - I'm not sure I  
care who actually owns it, as long as we're able to use it to  
demonstrate the system works.
