Hi Norman,

I've just started on the C implementation. My next task is to start porting the
Perl unit tests to C as a concrete way of thinking about how the C user API is
going to work. I would welcome your input and help on this front.

Right now the c/ dir in trunk just has a basic autoconf setup in place, mostly
as proof-of-concept (i.e. I'm not married to how it's implemented so far).

Let me know if you'd like to pitch in in this area. I am often on irc at
freenode in #lucy_dev (nick: karpet) if you find real-time chat more helpful.
Otherwise, this list is the best place to start asking questions.
