I think it's a real concern, and I'm wary of "we can patch
it away" because carrying a huge custom patch delta for UI
mods is what kept us from upgrading Bugzilla for multiple
years. I think "is it realistic that we can maintain this
and keep up with upstream even if Ben or Jan get hit by a
bus" is an important question with regard to both proposals.

I have similar concerns with some of the promised benefits
in the proposal because they strike me more of "we could",
which is cool, but it's not "we will". E.g. if test build-
ing precombined patches takes an OpenStack cluster - do we
have one? Where are we going to get that horsepower? Can
we keep it?

OTOH I expect that I *will* spend 1-2 hours a day five-six
days a week in the review web UI, and Phabricator's is
pretty nice off the shelf.

It's tricky.
