I don't actually mind either way - unfortunately I'm unlikely to be  
contributing a lot to this a long the other way other than throwing in  
my 2c, but we'll see :)

There are pros and cons.... the upside of starting over is that it is  
probably faster overall and you can set up some guidelines to stick to  
throughout (like style of testing, use of libraries), but on the other  
hand its much longer before anything usable comes out of it. Perhaps  
if we take the approach of moving much of the functionality to plugins  
we could have a functional, distributed builder core up more quickly.

I think either way that's a good idea, and particularly to have a  
vision for what it's focus is going to be. Is this just about cleaning  
up the internals, or is it to change the way Continuum works?
