Hi, Rick.  I don't know how to program, so I can't help with this  
open source project.  However, I want you to know that I use  
Excalibur often (currently in Mac OS X 10.4.8 on a 12" PB G4).  So,  
*thank you* for a very fine product all these years.  And I hope that  
someone or some folks will continue this very fine work.  Thank you  
for not letting it fade into obscurity.  Take care of your health.

With best wishes,
---John.
