You haven't bugged us at all!  Offering patches is a Good Thing, and maybe
someone will run with them; I'm just saying I don't have the bandwidth for
it, as I'm going in a different direction and need all the time I can carve
out for that.

I suggested you fork the code and start a new project on SourceForge --
you're welcome to do so.  Among other good things, you wouldn't have to talk
someone else into accepting patches <wink>.

Heh -- learn this algorithm inside out, think of a way to fool it, and sell
a new breed of spam-generation software to the spam industry.  Competition
is a good thing <wink>.
