I can help to coordinate these efforts. Novell seems open to 
re-licensing their code appropriately and they would be encouraged to 
hear that you're willing to work with them (rather than rewriting it all 
in C). Perhaps you could make the first move by helping to abstract 
their code a little and splitting it out into a separate assembly?
