Well, I still can't say I totally understand what is being proposed, but 
I'm not against having people work on it at Felix if other people think 
its worthwhile. If it does ultimately blossom into a full-blown shell 
for OSGi, then there will certainly be some overlap with Gogo, but we 
can always look for ways to bridge the two...
