If you went to the web site http://people.apache.org/~spepping/ very
rapidly after I sent this email, you may have read obsolete 'Notes
about the current state of the work'. Many limitations that were
listed there have now been removed, since those limitations have been
addressed in the course of development over the past year.

Best, Simon Pepping
