Hey there Alex,

Please feel free to post your patches here and we'll help you review
them.  MD is currently pretty tightly coupled to gtk#, so having a
cocoa# front end will make for some interesting re-factors.  I'd love to
help you with it, though, so please let us see the code that you've
developed so far.

IMHO, we should de-couple the front end from the rest of the features
and make a native Forms front end as well as Cocoa#.  However, lluis and
the novell guys are already quite busy with their own work.

Anyway, I need to head off to the easter festivities, so I'll stop
here :)
