Just a quick follow-up -- the software is open source and available for

It seems to me that we may want to have one of our Linux-savvy folks take 
a look at it.  I would also love to know if there are solutions that can 
be implemented into our own software or whether we should have folks 
working on a separate fork (if people are interested).
