Default [Q] Porting Android L

Now I really have NO idea about ROM porting. But I was thinking since the Moto X has a similar chipset to the Snapdragon S4 which the Nexus 4 has, and the Nexus 4 has a working Android L port, and from there, I was wondering, how hard would it be to port the Nexus 4 Android L port to the Moto X?

The devices are far too different for a port.

I am betting there will be nothing for the X until after its officially released... Which will be who knows when.... And when they release source code also, sometime after the update is released.
Sent from my new HTC One M8, N7, Moto X, GTab3 or S2.

Need help with poor battery life? Any device welcome, even tho its an N5 thread. Please specify if on a device other than N5. Lots of info in first 4 posts! >>>>

Porting becomes complicated due to the X8 thingy
