Yes, so it's pretty nice to try out things there before going full-on.

Yes, that probably should be the steps to follow eventually. My point
was that you don't have to submit patches for all 7x conversions for
an RFC round. Scanning them and seeing what would be necessary
definitely is a good idea but just giving summary of the full
conversion with several examples should be good enough before settling
on the way forward, which should be easier for all involved.

Thanks a lot for your effort!
