I haven't seen Jonathan around in a while, and the sourceforge site isn't 
getting any use. If you have a use for it and would like admin privileges, I 
can set that up, I think, assuming I can get access (I think I can). I'm not 
a good candidate for being the admin, and I get very poor performance and 
problems with sourceforge over my satellite link.
