It's my intention to get the specs hosted on fdo, and if possible the
client lib too. I have no idea how to get access to the wiki though, or
how to request a new project...
At the moment I'm writing an initial overview of what DAL (working
title) should provide, and trying to figure out what interface a certain
service should implement (currently as a proof of concept still working
on the screensaver<->IM app thing).
It'd be nice if I could get some wiki space to ease the process of
making these things public :-)
