Mike,  Have you got a URL?  I don't remember seeing this

My major concern regarding accepting this kind of thing are
the developers doing this work haven't really interacted with
us which means we have no one on this list that is apparently
interested in helping to maintain the code.  Therefore it is
destined to bitrot in our tree unless someone is active within
this development community.

cheers, jerry
