That would be great.  That's part of what I was trying to determine was if I
needed to do my own porting or if it was already done.

Let me know if I can do anything, I ordered the arduino this morning since I do
have a Macbook I can use initially, but would rather be using my FBSD development
box (Multiple displays, much larger than my 15" on the Mac).
