Yes, i am.  In fact, I've already done some, but a fair bit of it
needs to be rethought.

the problem is, i can think of few things that i'm not "supposed to"
work on that have a lower priority...  So, most likely, i'll do most
of the work on it when i have something that i'm supposed to do but
don't want to...  (that's one of the reasons i did the latest rev of
the alpha TC code...  8-)
