Hey all -

I¹m not sure if I¹ll be able to get out to California for an extended stay
around then, but I¹d love to if it can be arranged.  Maybe an actual
invitation from apple would make it easier to arrange!  Anything I can do to
help out, let me know, but otherwise, you seem to be handling things nicely.
It sounds like a great opportunity.  I¹m checking out OpenBio now, and they
seem like a pretty straightforward operation.  The only potential issue is
that they seem to be exclusively cross-platform stuff, but I guess we¹d just
have to ask about our stuff.

Thanks for you work on this -
