Cool! How are you finding things?

Yes. That sounds very doable. While Jifty isn't quite ready to be the
substrate for every RT instance everywhere on the planet, it's very much
ready for RT-like applications. (Mostly, I expect to wait about a year
before I try rebuilding RT on Jifty, but that's just because we have so
much other stuff going on.)

That sounds like a reasonable approximation of what Jifty is designed
for. We'd be thrilled to have you hacking in and on Jifty!
