Right now, I'm working through the samr calls. Once I get through them, 
I have a few FIXME comments around the code that I'll have to clean up.  
Also, I want to go over the interface, I think there are some 
inconsistencies, I want to fix it up so that any output parameters from 
one function can flow nicely into any calls that might come after and 
also make sure the code is clean and stable.  Also, I need to work on 
the comments and run doxygen to have some worthwhile documentation.

I think my plan is to finish up samr and clean up all the loose ends, 
then work on a demo for the library.  At that point, I expect I should 
still have a little time before the deadline, and I'll move on to the 
svcctl pipe and see how far i get.  Does that sound reasonable?

this isn't just a problem with your build environment. I'll fix this up

Sounds good.
