It's great to see other people taking an interest in the core. I really am, but I strongly
urge you to find a way to test this thoroughly before putting it in a standard release. This
is not a trivial change and Maven 3.x has been extremely stable to date. I personally think
you should make some form of release that indicates the transport has changed and that you
want people to try it. A dozen people trying it isn't going to reveal the potentially nasty
edge cases that crop up with transports.

I know you're committed to staying on top of it and bug fixing what's necessary but I really
don't think it's a great idea to drop this into the next release of 3.x without at least some
form of wider spread use. If you can get a few thousand people to try a distribution that
is built and released that will likely catch the major issues before being release to the
general population.

Our achievements speak for themselves. What we have to keep track
of are our failures, discouragements and doubts. We tend to forget
the past difficulties, the many false starts, and the painful
groping. We see our past achievements as the end result of a
clean forward thrust, and our present difficulties as
signs of decline and decay.
