That would indeed be great, and thanks, jmtd, for your work! (even if
you ultimately decide not to complete it, it's still cool)

...and then there comes the "...but does Caldera really have the right
to those sources?" question, which may or may not have been already
settled in the US courts (there are people who say "the decision that
one specific action did not mean that SCO owns the copyright still
does not necessarily mean that there are no other reasons for
SCO-name-of-the-month to own the copyright")...

Sorry... some people do say that I sometimes worry too much and throw
wet blankets on others' enthusiasm... :/
