Great, so the whole project is a waste of time.

I take it we'll still need to download everything twice to get FB + TB? And load the whole danm lot into memory twice?. 'Caus that will make everything faster too you know. I bet potential embeddors will be happy: "look they designed this technology so it could be used as a runtime for multiple apps, but trying to use it that way sucks so much that they're not even prepared to do it with their own products".

Cool.
