This is fun!

I am not saying we should fork but we do need to understand the 
ramifications.  By not forking any new developer will not be able to 
debug on the actual device assuming we are allowed to distribute EVC3.  
Otherwise they will not even have EVC3.  We can revisit this issue when 
the need comes up and it will.  I had my old copies on CDROM so I am 
good with EVC3.

Let the development fest begin.  O Wait we still need a feature list?  A 
goal to obtain, so we know when to stop and release.  If this document 
is not created then I could take a shot at it?
