I'm particularly interested in using this, myself. However, it requires
nodejs and a running Parsoid server, which means Parsoid needs
packaging. A lot of new stuff to worry about, so I kind-of agree with
Raphael that the sooner there are people kicking the tyres of this in
testing (or at least experimental), the better. However, of course,
someone needs to do the work. But, if the team is resource-starved, the
odds of managing to ensure the nodejs version works, dependencies are
right, packaging parsoid, getting the (multiple) init scripts right,
etc. is much slimmer nearer a freeze than now.

I see the package is maintained in SVN. What's the teams feelings on
git, and/or migrating to using git for the packaging? This may attract
more help, and/or have some advantages in terms of closeness with
upstream (who are using git).
