Aurelio, you are so cool! Thanks so much for this lovely commandline
hack for getting text. I'm cc'ing the list so comments can be made...

Cool! Please contribute a patch against ccHost or our current
tools/code, and I'll get you an account on either or both projects (as
they are both separate projects). 

At that point, you should send me your ssh2 (dsa, etc) and gpg keys,
real name, desired username and email so I can get you access to our
code and server on freedesktop.org

Awesome, I wonder if you could figure out a good way with php to make
font previews...something I could hook into php-based ccHost. 

We need both quick generic previews, and also previews where a user can
type in text and get back a sample to see what a font looks like (kinda
like a service)...

This looks cool! Also, the same goes for anyone. Send in one patch and
attach it to a bug/feature request in our tracker, and then provide what
I said above (keys, etc), and we'll get you an account so you can have
direct SVN access.

We are very very eager to get more developers onto the project!
