hi ola

one convention that we have in the commons that you might like to adopt is 
that we try to prefix mails with the name of the component in square 
brackets (eg. '[betwixt]'). this helps attract the attention of the 
developers who are involved with supporting that project.

(you ideas seem quite interesting - to me at least - but it's not really 
my area. so i'd hate to see you go off in a huff just because people are 
ignoring your posts.)
