My only concern is: do you really think that a package with 200+ bugs
opened need aestetical or architectural changes instead of bugfixes?
Of course, you're the expert here, so I won't argue...

The only thing that worths be added, is having an arch doc, that
explains the code structure, relationship and so, a sort of high-level
overview of the code.
