I agree with this assessment.

On the other hand there is a chance that starting a prototype will  
cause interest in the community and we'll get dedicated participants.  
This is a case of "build it and they'll come". E.g. Apache Click  
project has a simple Cayenne plugin. Maybe we can collaborate with  
them somehow. So there's hope (and there's also Summer of Code next  
year ;-)).

I am no Eclipse platform guru either, and have very little time, but I  
am interested enough to start poking and prototype a plugin that does  
something that Modeler doesn't. So that it will be a nice-to-have  
plugin for Cayenne users, even though it does not substitute the  
Modeler. This may generate some interest (or not).

But yeah, I agree with you, and let's step carefully and try not to  
overcommit ourselves to something that we can't deliver.
