The so far commited code on your project page is just skeletons
without much implementation done. Do you have just this or more?
Or did I miss something?

First of all, I am not working on this alone. :-) The code would be
Open Source, probably BSD-style licence. We didnt think about
that end too much yet. At first we wanted to wait for some release-
able code to be ready before we upload it or announce it
somewhere. Now that Ian is working on a Java version, I don't think
it makes much sense to keep on hacking on our version unless
we'd merge stuff. Ian's version is clearly the one to be used by
most people.

I didnt know about this one yet. There is some code there, dont know
how complete it is yet. Did you test it?
