So, when can I expect your updated work on the port, build all 
dependencies to make sure they keep on working etc? I understand that we 
want to have this as soon as possible, but also do keep in mind that we 
would like to make sure as much as possible that the code can actually 
work. I am not aware of the reason for this taking longer then some of 
you expect. But I am sure that there is a reason. It all remains 
volunteer work and people might choose to do different things then 
satisfy your specific need. Not that I am saying we shouldnt do it, but 
I am stating that there is more then just your wish.
