Well...I've now spent some actual time with 886 (-2,-3,and -4), and  
also with 3987.

While there is some very nice stuff in there, I'm really not sure how  
one would actually put it to use since the back-end and the front-end  
seem to have been split into separate branches.

It seems that you can't use 3987 without 886-x but you can't get them  
checked out at the same time in the same place or, at least, it's not  
clear to me how one would do that.

Is there any way to get a single checkout, that I can install into a  
virtualenv, where I can actually try to put this stuff to some sort of  
concrete use?

For me, until I put it to some actual use in the real world, all the  
abstract "code review" in the world isn't going to get it any closer  
to being shippable.
