Agreed.  I'm running it on a site.  Works fine for me so far.  I'm
sure there are bugs, but it's not unusable.

AFAIK this is also correct that progress is being made.

I debated about replying earlier and saying the opposite: pooling
resources (and possibly creating bounties) will likely help speed
things up.  I think providing testing, UI advice (views is at this
stage now), and code (both) is more valuable than money in this case.
There have been please for help - interested people should visit the
issue queues of the respective projects to see where they can help.

If people would rather throw money at the problem than resources, I
guess someone should follow up who is interested and long on time and
short on money to help fulfill that need ;)
