Of course, I am not suggesting that users should be forced to use a

Why don't we try out a small pilot project and get the early user
feedback, and see what happens? :)
again, it's not users but contributors, still different but why not, let

A major factor in favor of trying new technologies is, we don't have
old legacy data; so there are no worries about losing data because of
we have a lot of legacy data, so this is very important to take them in
