Another project: "Search and destroy the external dependencies" and remove 
hardcoded stuff like "if (tt_*) do this" in the TYPO3 BE libs.

I understand that flexforms were created during the making of TV, but I'd 
appreciate that especially those with the big picture in mind would not 
mingle their current projects with the existing Core. *

There are other dependecies to lorem_ipsum within the shipped exensions 
(3.8 at least). Kasper told me once that it was easier to do it this way 
(instead of creating a hook).


* Eg a discussion on XML formats would have saved us also many of the 
peculiarietes that the flex form format has.
