Even if we replace the existing impl, the old binary and source releases 
do not go away, so no one would be forced to upgrade before they were 
ready...of course, if there is some irreconcilable incompatibility 
between the two then we'd have an issue, but I doubt that would be the 
case since they are supposed to be implementing the same spec.

Well, it sounds like there is sufficient interest, so it would be great 
if Sten could make it available for people to play with via JIRA.

What do you think, Sten?
