It isn't as bad as it was 6 months ago. We've removed the dependencies on 
OpenGL. We have a group of developers, and getting larger. The ports to 
Windows and Mac OS X have just begun (the hard part will be the C vision 
code, I think).

This part of a 3-year NSF-funded project. We are just getting together our 
first testing schools; next year we will introduce it to the masses.

Any feedback from this group will gladly be incorporated into the 
project/code/materials. We do want to make it wasy for any schmos, including 
Art :) Even the docs and classroom materials are in a wiki.

Good luck!
