I appreciate the offer but how do you qualify as a lurker or how do you
think you fit the "I'd hate to dilute people's efforts on other fronts..."

I was hoping to give one of the silent people on this mailing list a
chance to contribute.  Most of the people here are here because they
said they wanted to contribute to the project.  Here's the chance.
