17 To Chris, John and Sami... that is great news! I was really hoping it
18 wouldn't be too difficult *and* someone else would see the value in this
19 capability. I had read some about Catalyst, but hadn't considered it as
20 the tool - but it sounds perfect!
22 I am in no big hurry, so am willing to wait, as long as I know it is
23 being worked on... also, I am *more* than happy to donate to show my
24 appreciation (I was willing to try to find someone to pay to code it up
25 myself anyway) - so, where do I send the funds? :)
27 Many thanks
