I wouldn't interpret too much into the GENIVI mail. Just face the fact that 
evaluating the situation will take several days. Unfortunately the Plasma team 
is rather full with work. Yes I'm interested, but till I find an empty spot for 
that takes some time. The mail got send in the middle of the very stressful 
GSoC evaluation period, etc. etc. And even if there were no replies on the 
mailing list we did talk with Agustin in the #plasma IRC channel.

And yes from the wider community we don't get the support for such things in 
Plasma. Rather the opposite. We get pushback for anything leaving the 
traditional desktop. Constantly. Just like your mail here.
