:-)  I don't have any objections, as long as people can keep the  
compilation speed up, though, sounds like a bit of work.  I'd look  
towards a project architect to help steer us towards goodness and  
keep us out of trouble.  I can see some advantage to having a cleaner  
boundary between the front-ends and the mid-end.
