If you'd like to have a crack at it I'm sure it would get the ball
rolling :)  Let me know how I can help.  I've got a lot of other stuff
on my plate too as far as programming, so it would probably be some time
before I would get to implementing this.  Having someone interested and
willing to put down some code would likely lead to it actually getting
done in a timely manner ;)  Best regards,
