I'd propose that concerns of maintenance/administration be separated
from the value accrued by this move. This approach worked out well

So, a question for Nigel - when you propose Zuul - what is the flow
and benefits that you see being available to the project? Have you
previously worked with Zuul or, can cite situations where adoption of
Zuul has helped?
