Well, sometimes there is heavy traffic on the
mailing list, but in some way you're right, the
discussions are only discussions.....

This question has been discussed as well. It would be
much better for the development progress if
the project would be considered as a 'real' project,
especially because it would raise the interest in it.

meet my requirements.
I would like to see more activity on this
project too, because it can be used in quite
a lot situations. A primary goal must be to
eliminate show stoppers like the one in the
disk cache and start profiling to find the
memory leaks mentioned by the people of
