    Have you read through the description of the user interface to 
definition layer "API" in comProtocols.txt? It is not very good 
documentation (apologies) so I just wanted to make sure that the way 
to communicate with the definition layer made sense. I've just 
basically been making it up as I go along, so 
suggestions/questions/comments on it are very welcome.
    Also, does the code in the current gnome front (Pied) make sense? 
I messed up a lot of crap in there and some of it needs some serious 
cleaning. Since it seems like you'll be building off of that for Peep, 
I just wanted to make sure that what was going on in there makes any 
    I'm so happy you're going to be starting up on this :-)

Yuppers. Very soon :-). I've been fighting with my old c++ compiler 
and my lack of c++ knowledge on trying to wrap Overflow (as Jean-Marc 
can attest to by my many frantic, confused messages to him :-). I'll 
drop that for now and focus on just getting what we have working under 
the new directory structure with the new install process. I'll be 
using autoconf for this, so working out of cvs will soon require 
understanding how this works and all of that.
    I'm sorry to be so slow. I'm just getting back from a conference 
and one of my good friends is visiting right now, but hopefully I'll 
crank it out by Fridayish. Sorry again to slow up the freight train 
o' progress...
