Thanks Simon, trying to work out what will be most productive for Sugar.

I'll carry on hacking just now, but I have also pinged upstream dev  
list so we'll see... Think progress will be much quicker if I just go  
dark for a bit and forked with no caution for other platforms/goals  
upstream labyrinth might or might not have/need – I'll be cautious  
with my changes for a bit, at least until I run out of minor or  
downstream todos.
