Thanks for sharing.  Have you entered it in the register at

One point you might like to consider.  Since you announced it here,
I guess you intend it to be available as open-source.  But nothing
in your code grants people any rights to it, so it's not really
open under the laws of any country that respects international
copyright law.  You might want to add a license: for example,
the Apache license, as included in the apache distribution.
