I'm not so sure that we're way far off. Currently, the big piece of our tech looks like:
- Getting nodes into and out of git as slimmed down XML
- being able to "bootstrap" an ecore site (such as perlmonks or E2) based out of github, so that multiple developers can work on the engine instead of patching the nodes in the database
If the underlying libraries are in source control anywhere, then we can see if there's anything that needs to be done to bring them together. I'd be happy to set up my github project so that perlmonks can submodule the tools section.
I don't know how much unification work it's going to take to port it, but if it's doable, it's certainly worth the gains in performance. Our compiled mode alone does wonders for performance on the dev branch.
