Sorry for the slow response - I know I've been taken away from open source
for the last couple of weeks and I guess John's been busy too.  We are
certainly open to contributions from non-committers but seeing a patch makes
it much easier to judge :)    Personally I'd prefer patches against cli2 but
that's because I'm aiming to have that codebase adopted for release sometime
soon - by no means a certain thing.

Proposing / discussing possible improvements on the list would be a good
start and if things look interesting then someone should create a bugzilla
entry to stop things being lost (sorry if you've entered one already - I'll
check those tomorrow).  Whether you need to supply a prototype probably
depends on whether we understand your idea properly so I'd recommend
chatting first and supplying code later unless you have things ready to go.

Looking forward to your ideas,
