Good to hear a kitchen is coming! I've been holding off and holding off on rooting mine until there is a ROM I trust available for it - I don't like deviating too far from stock!
Paul - given that bootloaders/S-ON issues and the interaction with HTCDev in order to get custom ROMs on the One series, any chance that when you release the kitchen you can whack up some basic step-by-step type instructions for those of us who are computer-savvy but not massively Android experienced? I rooted and MCR'd my old Desire, but the newer devices don't seem to be quite as straightforward...
