Has anyone had any time to look at this?  I would like to move forward  
and get some feedback from the Debian-Mentors list but I don't want to  
rush it.  I know that some people expressed interest in making sure  
this package hit all the right buttons and I would like to know what  
they think of it so far.


P.S. I'll probably build another version from SVN next week.
