Yeah, I know you are trying to extend the original work, but as a group it
doesn't seem like we have that focus. Also, I wasn't sure if you were going
to look at Hugo's initial implementation or not. At the end of the day, I,
like Doug, don't really care where or how the code appears -- so if people
want to abandon Hugo's initial effort that's fine, but it would seem like a
shorter path to build on the original work. I haven't looked at the new stuff
in the sandbox or read the other thread yet...
