I really enjoyed reading your detailed and honest report, and even if I
have not been able to follow the second half of the coding period in
details, I am pleased with the work you have done.

Even if I stepped down I am still a commiter, so there is nothing
besides time which prevents me from integrating your work in particular
if those changes are safe.  In theory, refactoring work can easily be
reviewed if for example you create one patch for each module extracted
with its corresponding test.  I recommend to submit those patches
incrementally to <address@hidden>.

Thank you for your participation in the GSoC!
