2 main things are causing problems with the aggregation module:
1) I am not sure whether you will be maintaining it or it'll be dead
after a while like the rest.
2) You are depending on php5. I'm still running 4 and not planning to move now.
We really have a mess and I guess the only way to solve it is a core aggregator rework.
I don't have much time for that and I don't think I have much experience.
What do you think ?
