I don't want to start another debate here, but what I intended to say was
perhaps Daniel should just be left to get on with it seeing as no one has
to scratch that itch so far. Back when the modules site was move to the ASF 
hardware a year ago, talk back then was that it needed to be rewritten. So
been plenty of time for others to step up between now and  then.

Daniel now has , and in only takes but 5 minutes to see what an improvement
it is, 
it's a no brainer.

Then, if this re-invigorates folks to jump in and help with improvements and
new features 
then that's great too. [+]

I'll agree that 72 hours [*] may not be enough for some folks if they are
away or whatever, lets 
have Daniel extend until after the weekend then, but really no more, his
itch is burning and 
we shouldn't stop that flow without good reason. And I don't see any good


[+] - I'm here with that intention , hope others do too.

[*] - I planted Daniel with the suggestion of 72 hours , so blame me for
that, I thought no one would dare object :)
