I don't see any advantage in that, because it would end up the same as
with F17 and F18. We don't do only changes we want to do and we come up
with. As many other packages change these changes have to be reflected
in Anaconda [1]. And that's the work that has to be done no matter we
want/need to focus on the redesign/rewrite or not.
