Ok, I will bite.

Lets say we were willing to sponsor such an effort, are there folks who 
would be willing to act as the maintainers? Keeping distribution in line 
with the current stable / beta / dev efforts ?

I'd be willing to listen to ideas/proposals, its not just the money 
aspect, but also servers, download cdn, the organization and expectations.
