OK, it's not just me then. Which is good. Sort of.

I think we have a Maven build after the Ant one and before the Gradle
one. I know, I started it. :-)

Also there was the modular rewrite, which put some hacks in along with
the JDK version stuff. 

If you can put in place an overall new architecture for a Gradle 4.0
build, and do an exemplar "module" then many of us can chip in doing
the leg-work of all the other "modules". Also if there is a repository
to clone and work in which is not the mainline, it can be cloned and
builds tried.

We are here to help, you are not alone.
