Yes :( I got a new job somehere around that time and couldn't find free
time to work on it. If I get the SoC project (or another sponsor - I'm
open to proposals), I'll go ahead and finish it properly.

For now, it mostly works, the TODO list includes recovery when the
connection breaks, initial synchronization, more robust operation and
possibly some optimizations here and there. If you want to test it, go
ahead - it (probably) won't do any harm to your data.
