It looks very nice.  I didn't know that you were into video encoding.

Are you planning on creating a separate code base -- going back to "GMS"?

As long as you stick around, I'll be happy :-)

I hope we can get some more developers interested soon.  It can be hard
though, when there are thousands of Open Source projects already out there. 
People are more interested in starting projects than joining them, or even
finishing them.  But, we'll see.  Piper is interesting enough to garner a
lot of attention.  I think it is far more interesting than GNOME or KDE, and
I wish other people could see that it is.  This is why we need to make some
announcements soon.
