It's not your fault. Your message just pressed a few hot buttons, and 
some of the responses certainly did.

To be honest I'd go beyond that and say that at this point it doesn't 
look practical. The best and easiest way to approach that is with shared 
tools and libraries - and the tools the three projects use are all 
remarkably different. It's not impossible, just a big job made bigger by 
the major differences in all the projects.

LGM was a step toward better communication and cooperation. I personally 
suspect most future collaboration will be of ideas, not code, so it was 
a very important step.
