Well, this was brought up on wplug-web, so I'll copy my response:

Personally, I'm for a rewrite. The code was written by two much 
younger, less experienced programmers (read: evand and zman) and I 
think we could do a far better job now.

It seems like procedure would dictate putting it to the board as a 
proposal by the web committee, and then continuing discussion on 
wplug-web as to actual implementation, should the resolution pass.
