Sure, to guarantee that nothing is lost. Please give as many details as possible about your work on D-I for the FR so that maitnainers who would not be part of the D-I team understand what's all this about. Some may raise objections as the freeze is going on.

Would be nice to have this in D-I SVN. Maybe first under people/ before we move it to packages/ when things are reviewed/ready. Great work, anyway. Even though I haven't seen this, I think your descriptions gives a good picture of all this.
