Ground-up rewrite? Yikes.

Love to, except that I don't know beans about all the nitty-gritty details
of the specifications involved, particularly the formatting object stuff
which I haven't even studied, or about some other aspects -- this
ECMAScript thing for instance. For that matter, I don't know beans about
beans -- JavaBeans that is. (Aren't they one of those dubious rapid
application development things, for "visual application editing", which
usually lead to slow and unreliable apps full of machine-generated glue
code anyways?)

Besides, there's this WOL project over here that probably can't coexist
with the full-time job of picking up all of that stuff.
