Hello Bruno,

if I remember well how the patches of Kohsuke landed, I remember I was
unable to apply them because they seemed to be breaking some of the
"standard command-line jelly". I think I remember that a pluggeable
context was discussed but, maybe, was not developed.

Thus, I can only encourage you to go ahead. I think it would be nice to
have both worlds working well with a single code base.

I have not been able to save cycles to address more issues of Jelly and
I know of some other folks, fellows in research in learning technology,
that were, looking forward to getting more releases of jelly at the time
I met them.

Hope it helps.
I am happy to help you if I can towards making it better.
