Andy -

  I did get in contact with Savannah last night and put in a new project 
request, which is still pending.  Hopefully that won't take too long though.

That's true, though a lot of people like programming in PHP. If we were
to give them something valuable, that would be nice from a
distributed-and-sandboxed-web-services point of view ;-)

I don't recall, did we answer your question about hosting? (Sorry, I've
been spotty these last few days.) We talked about it and thought that
implementing PHP could get quite large, so an external project would be
better. Have you contacted savannah to set up a project?

Ahem ;) Are you presuming to add items to _my_ to-do list? ;-)

I would like to finish implementing the spec. Mostly it's the library
that's left to do, but there are some syntactic bits too.
