I am in hospital at the moment - one of the muscles of my left leg refused to work and the doctors look for the reason.
Get better first, then think about this, its a second priority.
I could not read all posts - I would just like to tell you that two more people are interested in this daemon - and they want to write it - so it seems that this project has the unique chance to be something supported by a broad community of top people. I have never managed such huge community effort, so I have no idea about the dynamics. I only hope that personal pursuits will not allow any of the great people interested in the daemon to be lost.
Ken Jones has allready written one, and was releasing a beta on Monday, we shall see how that goes.
I'll try to come back to the list on Monday.
Until then - best to all,
