Testing of course is the first step in finding out whether it is supportable, 
or whether there are obstacles at all. Like I mentioned during the last

issues might have gone away already. There's nothing to stop you from getting it
included, and start allocating some time on it. The Final Freeze is still months
ahead. :)
