Actually, I like the idea too.  It's something that's going on my list of projects
to work on, someday, when I have time... (yeah, right.)  Of course, I know enough
to not commit to anything without having read through the relevant RFC's and such
first...   ;)   So, I've been bookmarking all the ref's that have been given
out.   It does sound like an interesting mid-sized (for one person) project....
