When I try to understand the build system, I get lost.  That might 
continue to happen even with a switch to gradle, of course.  Just having 
somebody work on the build system is likely to clean it up and make it 
easier to understand ... whether we migrate or not.

I do like your idea of doing the work in master, letting it bake for a 
while to work out the kinks, and if it turns out really nice, 
backporting it to the stable branch.
