Speaking of "post-5.0"...what came out of the telecon on the future of LSB a few months ago?

I'll also point out that, post-5.0, we're hoping to refactor these
processes to a great degree.  What that will look like is still a bit up
in the air.  Thus, it's likely that any estimate we'd make for today's
tools wouldn't apply to the future toolset.
