Hi Graeme,

Why don't you release the code yet? Put a notification somewhere on the wiki 
with a download link, or even better ask nicely to the Lazarus or FPC crew 
to add it to SVN as a subproject. I'm shure they don't mind ;) Perhaps one 
or two will join you and you will get more done in less time.
