Also, let's say that if someone with personal interest in keeping
it working addresses the issues within the next few years, then
the pressure of splitting it out decreases quite a lot.

In the big picture, weave is relatively "mature" code base, and
keeping it working is probably not too big apart from the Py3 port.
