Yikes, yes, sorry.... I apologize for not getting back to you!  Do
you think you would be interested in creating a "modal" BackTalk
where you could switch between restructuredtext and classic stx?  If
so, I would be happy to give you contributor access to the
sourceforge project.  We have a lot of documents in BackTalk that
depend on the (mis?)-features of classic stx, so to replace the
classic-stx-based implementation with a restructuredtext
implementation wholesale is less than desirable, but I have no
problem giving people the choice on a per-book or per-document basis
whether they'd like to use stx or re-stx.

Thanks again,
