Thanks for the help of Yuval Yaari and Ran Eilam so far.

Many things have been cleaned up and the code is in a much better
state now than a week ago but I am still looking for more people to
work on this project.

So go to http://yapcom.pti.co.il/ and join the mailing lists if you
would like to help.
