Hey, that's exactly the way I imagined it. What the project needs is not the 
one guy who does all the dirty work, but just someone who gets the thing 
moving. I intended to do someting like that two years ago, but with the revised 
library somewhere in pre-alpha state it was just not the right moment. Now, we 
might be at a completely different point, especially since the state of the 
project as define a lot more clearly than back then (license issues have been 
settled, relationship between GNU and Waikato is established, etc.)

If there is noone else who could imagine taking lead, I do not have any 
objections against John Meacham stepping in. As it looks, he will certainly 
need others to share responsibility, but I think these people will show up 

If there are any others who could imagine helping out on certain tasks, please 
speak up. It is always good to have the project backed up by a number of people 
supporting it.

I would like to wait a few more days for any other opinions on these topics, 
before me make any decision. Anyway, there is, of course, no point in waiting 
too long... :-)
