I meant that it's a good start. It's a fully functional solution (for
its intended audience) that works now and thus might give you ideas how
you want your solution to work.

My point is only that since trying to convince people on -hackers to
write the code isn't working, perhaps someone (you?) could write it
seperately for possible inclusion later. If someone writes it all
themselves then they can send a patch. OTOH if several people want to
collaborate on a solution, something like pgfoundary is useful.
