It has to do with what is right.
Allow me to provide a little background:
1) I do not use FPC at all;
2) Essentially, I was "hired" by Scooter Software (they do use FPC, I presume) to implement the subj (after one other person failed to improve on my earlier work);
3) I have not abandoned this project (and I am as frustrated with the pace as you may be; although, the previous disruption was not my fault -- I had allocated last December to finally have this merged, but got no response from maintainers within a month).

TL;DR: while there may be nothing preventing you from just grabbing the feature-ready files and "taking over" from the legal standpoint (and I do not care to check), there are other implications to consider.

The other reason I mentioned Scooter Software is that they may be interested in funding your further work. (The list does not reflect this, but I CC'ed my original message to them to keep them in the loop.)
