Hi there.

Woops - I didn't realise that I'm on the users list rather than the dev list
and that I had actually replied to an email from the dev list.

| Makes sense.  But hopefully we can keep you around for help.

Sure.  I'm trying to avoid overcommitment to projects at the moment - I'm
particularly bogged down in the GNU Common Lisp project at a level I never
intended and to the detriment of projects more near to my own interests -
Its a worthy project, but I don't want a repeat experience!

| Also, if
| you can include some regression tests that will help.

Am writing library bindings as I write test/example programs so hopefully
that will do the trick.
