I think we all know your contributions on other projects and your a 
great candidate for this especially with your involvement on Felix.  I 
think it would be nice to have both you and John Conlon working with 
Enrique on this stuff.

BTW code documentation and docs in general are far far more important to 
me than writing the code itself.  Participation in the community is also 
another important factor that is just as good as writing code.
