I can feel an ArithmeticException coming on... ;)

Definately and absolutely. Sorry I didn't reply earlier - tied up at work
at the moment.

Fine by me. +1.

Agreed. I started to do some work on it a while back when I (briefly)
started porting the esql tablib to C2. The Turbine stuff is good, but I
think we need something a little more general these days. Can't help
feeling there should be a central repository of interesting Avalon
components (note: not blocks, although I think that will come too).

Berin: I'm (relatively) free this weekend (read: only one project to
work on!) -- is there anything I can do to help?
