Excellent news, thanks all... ask and you shall receive :). Is this
updated version going to be in the GIT master, and if so, is it stable
enough where I can pull it and test it out? Are you thinking of
including this commit in the next tagged release, or doing an immediate
new tag commit?
I am hoping to have some of my testing written out in a rough format for
review here within the next few days. How do you suggest that I send
those to you folks? I don't want anything that could be inaccurate
getting indexed somewhere...
