So the questions are how well tested are the new Dojo tags, and if they're
not tested well enough how long would it take to test them? Lastly, how much
rework, if any, is required to match the functionality of the 0.4x plugin?

My impression is still that Dojo 1.0 is pretty different from Dojo 0.4x, and
that this is a non-trivial project--but that's a guess made from ignorance.
Is there any evidence to the contrary? Have the tags been tested (even
manually) on the client side to bulk-verify behavior?

Due to some immediate responsibilities, my availability for working on a Dojo
1.0 plugin is limited and conditional:

-- I have some time I can dedicate to *testing* new Dojo tags.
-- I don't have the time to learn Dojo 1.0 well and implement much changed
and/or new functionality if both the cost and risk are high.
-- The window within that time is available is short, and dwindling.
-- The more people working on it the more likely I am to make the time
because of a perceived lower risk.

Nutshell: what's anybody's take on the effort this would require, and who's
available to make that effort?
