I'm interested. It is not a high priority for me because it is
something that Barry is doing for MM 3 anyway.

My concern is to not create additional 2.1 -> 2.2 -> 3 migration
headaches. If this is something that could ease the migration to MM 3
by providing a 'stepwise' path, that would be great. However, if it is
viewed as something that will be done for MM 2.2 and then totally
redone for MM 3, I'm afraid it will just encourage people to skip MM
2.2 and wait for MM 3.
