Preface: Moving conversation to the list per Matthew's suggestion.  
For those that didn't see, Dojo released their latest and greatest  
today, a large, backwards incompatible change that will definitely  
require a non-trivial chunk of developer time when we do upgrade. Now  
onto the meat...


My feeling right now is that we shouldn't rule out upgrading in the  
Cosmo 0.8 timeframe. I'm definitely for waiting until we hear more  
reports about both Dojo 0.9 and Hub performance. Chatting with Alex  
(Russell) when he was in the office convinced me that we're likely to  
see performance enhancements due to both a streamlining of the Dojo  
code and our ability to do layered builds more easily, so if we start  
hearing that web ui performance is horribly unacceptable this might  
be something to explore.

Personally I need to do a bit more reading before I'll be able to put  
together an accurate estimate of how long this process will take, so  
this feeling could very easily change in the next week or so. I think  
it might make sense for at least Matthew, Bobby and I to  
independently come up with estimates (likely SWAGs :-) ) after  
getting familiar with the porting guide and go from there.
