You're fine posting something as serious and elaborate (and actually
implemented!) on bf-committers, don't lose your time with bf-funboard (you
would know what I mean if you had dealt with the list a lot ;)

I would propose joining #blendercoders on irc.freenode.net, which is a
channel where Ton (the core coder) is available for discussion at regular
intervals. He is the only one who knows enough about the render core and
DNA system to do reliable 'QA' on your (very interesting) feature.

There are regular meetings on Sundays, at 16:00 CET. Ton is mostly available
in these, so that would be a good time to pass by.

Other than this, I have to say - nice idea, nice implementation (as far as I
can tell), nice UI :)
