The fork was initially off of old code, but we've been merging in changes from git://
periodically, with the 
latest being just after the core v0.0.8/client v0.0.9.8 release. so it's not too far out of
date, though the Michal's xml_to_class changes 
will take a bit of work to merge, since I had changes there as well.

Sounds good - I'll try to start cranking out patches early next week. Would you prefer them
posted to the list, or attached to jiras?
