I think this is wonderful! The biggest problem is that no one else seems to
know about it. Would you be interested in submitting messages to Freshmeat, Linux
Weekly News, and/or LinuxToday? They'd give your work much wider visibility
and might get some offers of help. Actually, just putting a message out on the
seul-announce mailing list will probably get it to LWN and LinuxToday. If you're
interested in doing this send me a message privately and we'll work out a
suitable "press release." Or just do it!
