This has actually been proposed several times, so an attempt could
be made to do this.

On the other hand, Pierre Muller seems to have the new FV to a point
where it can actually run an application. Since the patch for TV is
almost as big as the sources itself, it may be a better strategy to
cooperate with Pierre to get FVision to work.
