    I wouldn't leave it parked too long. The issues of funding and remuneration 
will delay/derail progress more than all of the technical challenges combined.
I agree.

My expectation would be to first see whether we can make progress on 2-3 as 
this affects code size to be certified. Without knowing how much code we are 
looking at, it will be impossible to have any credible discussion about 
funding. I am not intending to delay this discussion: primarily looking at this 
from a critical path perspective.
