OK, that's good. It will be worth gathering a group of experts to build a

While the extensions in particular are a concern (plenty of us will be
horrified to lose the Presenter Console from Impress for example), it's also
important to get the work that was in progress internal to Sun on core code
features when the project was frozen - i.e., code that had not yet made it
to open source but was expected to do so.
