Given that GFac architecture is a major change, I would vote to push foreword with the release
with just this capability.

These are good capabilities, but I feel we need more time to enhance the API, XBaya and test
before we release and advertise these as supported features. I think, focusing on a release
with GFac changes will give us enough time to test and harden it.
