Reasonably well. I was scheduled for 8pm on the night that
fend-for-yourself dinner, so not easy to get an audience. But I did have
a handful of folks show up, and had some good discussions with folks
from Windriver, as well as a PhD student who is looking at Kconfig
issues from a very formal point of view. There were no objections to
what I'm trying to push (its not really *that* interesting in the end),
but we'll see how the community reacts.
Oh, and I still need to post the slides/notes somewhere. I'll try to get
to that this week.

Not yet. Mark is working on getting a prototype with demo applications
up and running, and once that is done and it is shown to work, he plans
to get some wider feedback. I'm also working on my own approach to test
its viability, but will be sure to pull Arve into the discussion before
any hard decisions are made.
