I don't disagree at all that one should contribute. I certainly need to
do more, but in this case I think the code base should be dumped and 
started over from scratch.  Its a mess that resulted from trying to
do things quickly as opposed to correctly. It seems to me that the 
project is going in the wrong dirrection.  Besides if I have time to
code I have a rather long list of projects that I want to see improve
that don't have a viable alternative. ;)
