Thanks for the link. I briefly looked at it, and it sure would be hard to 
tell if it has application here. The material looks developer oriented. Your 
short descriptions gives more insight than their home page. They aren't 
exactly marketing driven; however, I'll give it a closer look. Maybe joining 
the forum will reveal more about it.
