I am on my way out and do not have time to fully read everything
you have here. But I did want to let you (and other interested
members) know that we have committed to a GUI for FreePM.  In
taht vein, I can commit us to contributing to this project to
help build that infrastucture.  It sounds like we have a lot of
the same ideas.

Why don't you head this up and start coordination? I'll get back
with you later this week.
