Hi Jim!

[ great to hear from you again :) ]

I have to run soon and will be offline for a few days, so I wanted to
at least drop a very quick reply to get you going, while I have a
chance for a more detailed discussion.

First, this is *great* news.  We'll do whatever we can from our side
to make the integration easier as we move forward.

As to this point, yes, please base any new work you do on the 0.11
tree (master branch on github).  The 0.10 codebase is in minimal
maintenance-only mode, while the 0.11 one is in very active
development and has seen massive refactorings (for the better).  So
that's the place to build any new ideas on.

Will get back to you with more later...
