Sorry for the delay, I'm not keeping as close an eye as I had been on 
the mailing list.

As for several concerns brought up...

1. It is my intention to donate all the code for this implementation to 
the ASF, I don't particularly care about any copyright on it. Anyone can 
use it :)

2. The copyrights in the files were copied from some other derby files 
and I should have brought them up to date, my bad. All code contributed 
was coded by myself over the last year.

3. The implementation as is works with the majority of the derbyall 
suite with a few problems I couldnt track down.  This was accomplished 
by hardcoding MemoryStorageFactory as the storagefactory for the 
directory subsubprotocol.  This is obviously a suboptimal solution but 
it does work. Any suggestions on a more generic way to test this?

4. As for a functional spec, some of my thesis may not be too bad for 
some it.

Any suggestions as to what I can try to do withing the next few days to 
get this goin?
