I don't think that question is very pertinent to the list; it's more  
of a longterm thing. The es committee has little interest in it for  
the relevant future and I agree with this given the other needs,  
available slack time, and induced complexity. Luckily, a somewhat  
parallel browser does not need it, as I've hopefully made clear.
