Honestly if you're doing the work to re-write everything, I
think you're more than qualified to be the maintainer. I
would also support Sumit as well.

I do think this would benefit both from multiple maintainers and
from maintainers who are actively using the framework. Like I
said, I can still be a maintainer but I think having some comaintainers
would be very helpful (and I'd support any of the names you've
suggested)

I think you have to shout "Noes goes" first. :)
