  Nothing so grand. As in all things software, simpler/smaller/faster is
better (usually in that order). There are TOO many voices to interfere.

  My experience has been that you FIRST make a proof of concept. Get it
working, write the instructions, make it baby proof to code merge, etc.
THEN, you try to convince them to accept it.

  Franco kernel or any other custom kernel follows the official Android
git. We need to get it out there so that it gets attention. David Taht et
al have been working for YEARS on getting people to notice something that
has PHYSICAL verifiable proof = facts. It's a
technical/political/financial/faith/crazy issue. No intention to offend

  I am all for it. Keep us posted. :) A lot of folks here have experience
on getting GOOD/NECESSARY/PROVED things going when everyone else disagrees.
Reach out. We can all benefit from it.
