I'd be happy to commit to that for the foreseeable future.

Sounds sane. Would I be able to get access to PSF infrastructure to get

probably do the conversion on my own box, but for authn/authz it might 
be useful to be able to use PSF infra.

Moving the current content to a wiki page like you suggest later in this
