10 I'm actually looking into this. I'm a little swamped at the moment,
11 so other than thinking about it, nothing has been done yet. Hopefully
12 I'll get to it in a month or so, after I finish my current projects
13 and then knock our documentation system back into place (it was a good
14 idea when they implemented it but scaleability never crossed their
15 minds). Let me know if you get anything done.
