I think that a 1.4 version of concurrent probably can/could be in
Orbit...though I'm not sure about the usage/demand from other
projects...but you could send an email to orbit-dev to get their view
before doing the associated work.
BTW, what's the license for the backport? I can't seem to find it on
the sourceforge pages. In either case (Orbit or not), we'll have to get
IP approval (although perhaps a backport will be easier).
I'm not actually convinced, though, that moving the discovery ui down to
1.4 is necessary (bug 257381). Yes, it would be better, but given it's
UI level I'm not sure it's required.
