[Scummvm-devel] Bringing our Core Code to another Level?

Hi people,

As many of you probably know our core code is really nice when 
reimplementing (old) 2D adventure games. This is a result of many 
talented people working on our engines and many talented people 
improving our core code to make the engines people's life easier. 
However, it is also helpful for games beyond the adventure genre. This 
created the idea of having a separate core which can be used by 
third-party projects which focus on other genres of 2D games.

I think such a split off core resulting in an unbranded (i.e. no ScummVM 
name on it except for credits to its origins) project would be a really 
nice thing to do in the long run. Of course, ScummVM would then use this 
same core as much as possible. Thus, I think we should really discuss 
whether this is something people would agree with.

So, any thoughts on this?
