Amazing, could you smell my reticence ?  :o)
I voted yes, because I'd like to see people working
on it. Certainly interested in using it, not-so-interested
in working on it now (sorry, got a master thesis to finish).
You got me Guido, touché.

(if not already!) and ask for contributors at the forums.
After a while the answer to the questions raised here will
be answered naturally.
