I won't lie to you and say it's an *easy* task. But anyone working on it 
is better than no one working on it!

There's really 2 levels of what needs to be done:

1) simple enhancements or bug-fixes to the 4.6 version to bring it a 
little more into line with what it needs to be in order to really be 
useful, functional software for sites.

2) Backporting the 4.7 stuff. This will undoubtedly require gettting up 
close and personal with the forms api -- I did a lot of interesting and 
evil things.

Go ahead and join the Views Developer's Group on groups.drupal.org and 
we can set up a discussion on the topic.
