Apparently it's been lurking quietly. There were only 3 people with
commit access to the svn, which has been up all this time, just unknown
since the trac instance was down (spammed to death).

Today I helped Brian resurrect it's public face, website in progress,
but code as it stands is now available on github in anticipation of
merges, pull requests and contributors.

To all those with forks, it would be great to bring it all back together
if possible - or at least make it easier to figure out what's different
between the forks.
