There are several papers on Thorium based fuel and fuel cycle in an upcoming meeting, but they are more conventional (not salt-bassed) fuel, but in thermal, epithermal and fast reactors. So lots of folks are taking Th-based fuel cycles seriously.

The VVER type fuel assembly/core system (hexagonal or triangular lattice) is apparently good for the Th-fuel cycle.
