I was just clearing out some old emails and noticed that I never pinged
you about this. Have you had a chance to work on it? I don't see
anything in NEWS or the manual about it, so I assume you haven't. I'm
still interested, but I'm afraid I don't have time to help, so don't worry
about it if you don't have time either.
