I, for one, would like to look at your current code (whatever its
state). I had some ideas about desired API features so I want to see
whether your design misses anything (and I'll contribute patches if it
does). Yes, I understand it's unreleased/unstable/whatever; I'm still
eager to see it. I think I'm not the only one.
I think it would be best if you make your development repository
publicly availiable - but a single snapshot would also do the trick.
