We're busy people with jobs and school and family. Generally how it
works in open source is you do work on your thing, make an early
release, and people attracted to the idea will try and work on it.

Also, from my perspective, the idea sounds extremely difficult, if not
impossible, definitely NotThatMuchWork. I, and I doubt many others,
don't want to commit time to a huge unknown like that.

So, work on a proof of concept, and go from there. If it actually
works as claimed, I'll be one of the first to jump on board.
