Google looking into Chrome for Windows Phone?

Since 2012 there has been an open ticket at code.google.com labelled:

Issue 153802: Port Chrome to Windows Phone 8 aka WP8

This has been blocked for a while however, seemingly because no-one at Google purchased any Windows Phones.

Now however, after 8 months of lying fallow, Carlos Pizano, Software Engineer and "Metro Gnome" at Google, has re-opened the ticket and assigned it to fellow member of the Chromium team dxie, for investigation.

Hopefully the move is a sign that the growing popularity of Windows Phone is creating a population too large for Google to ignore.

Are our readers looking forward to Chrome for Windows Phone?

Thanks korreBorre  for the tip.
