Great! (that it worked, not that your eyes nearly popped out ;))

Cool, the more programmers there are, the better :).
Re. the source structure, it's pretty good, but there's always some room
for improvement ;). This will probably be necessary to exploit when
we're heading for project support, but there's some time until then.

What kind of timetable are you talking about?
If you're talking about posting new _experimental_ builds on GC that
have the ui functions included, it's up to Jonathan and when he finds
some time to build and upload those.
If you're talking about a _stable_ release, this will probably be tied
to the TL release schedule. I'm not sure when TL'10 will be released,
but I guess it's sometime in summer or early fall. And until then, we
should have scripting completed and tested ;).
