that's the bit that i find very frustrating, knowing that with
a simple API of four hours' work, that could all change.
you know what? fuckit. i'll do it myself.

*sigh* ... the answer is, when someone pays me enough to work ok it.
[longer answer plus explanation:]
and i'm not prepared to sell myself short, which i justify because
when i get going, shit happens [which scares people, i have to admit].
and well, the fall-out from some really bad... uhh... stuff,
has scared a lot of people even _more_. additionally, i
believe that The Usual Suspects [for hiring open source
developers] have suspect motives, and after a number of
[plenty-of-catches-and-traps] attempts have given up on me
because i saw through their entrapments.
so whilst the short answer is, "when someone pays me", the
longer answer is, "when someone comes forward that is not
a U.S.-based corporation".
