Well, understand that XAP is still in the incubator and is frankly a long
way from graduating. Also, I would not look to XAP to solve any "there might
be significant changes between versions" problem, given that they are in the
process of creating their 0.5.0 release right now, and therefore well behind
Dojo on the API stability curve.

We've had Dojo support in S2 for quite some time now, and Dojo has since
significantly stabilised and improved. It's not at all clear to me that
jumping horses would be a good thing, given that we already have a bunch of
people using the Dojo-based code, and given that switching to a new code
base will reset us to square one when it comes to ironing out the issues
that we will inevitably discover in whatever framework we might switch to.
