I gather from your email that you still have several ideas how to
proceed. So I recommend you to follow your ideas first. If you like, you
may conduct your work on a publicly visible topic branch at GitHub and
announce your branch here. So other people could take a look (at their
discretion) and may give advice. GitHub is just great for that.

Once you arrive at a point where you get stuck and seek practical
assistance, sharing your branch would be most effective way to allow us
reproducing your problem.

But most importantly: Don't feel pressured by me. :-)

Is the Section 5.3 "Build system" of the forthcoming documentation [1]
able to clear things up? If not, I am keen to know what information you
find missing.

Please refer to Section 5.5.2. "Development practice" of the
soon-to-be-published documentation [1].
