And it may well not extend to etch at all. It all depends on the work
done on this topic, freeing the hands of volunteers, which work is
postponed after the release with the kernel team's proposal.

Also, the kernel team proposal proposal will end up extending post-etch
as well; if we don't have the technical means to implement it, we will
end up with this same discussion again and we all know the result.

I am not willing to reword the proposal until Don's GR is accepted. If
it is, it will of course not make much sense to keep it this way.
