We are not yet at that level of details, afaik, and as I said, we are
quite busy with others stuff.

My own opinion is that the issue that lead to the creation of PLF would
still apply.

Not to mention that PLF has a cool logo, and that's a good reason to not
drop it :p  

But you should maybe ask to PLF directly on PLF discuss ?
