How do you think we all got here?  =)

I'd planned to lurk, but seeing that there are so few developers currently perhaps I'll say more.  This project caught my interest mainly because I keep waiting to see what the next evolution of the ultra-powerful but ultra-unfriendly prompt-pipe combo.  This project and the Enlightenment File Manager are the first positive steps away from a pure prompt that I've yet seen.  I don't have a lot of Gnome/Bonobo development experience, but I'm strong in many other areas (game development background) which may or may not be useful as the project develops.

Hope it all goes well. =)
