Actually I did pay attention, as Ivan was doing this for a Google Summer of
Code project, which was initiated by my from under the Fedora project umbrella.
Since I was Ivan's mentor that project I did closely follow his work, but
unfortunately his results where not all that I had hoped for. Hence this new
attempt, with lessons learned from the Ivan story. I've already given my
students a link to the website where Ivan's stuff is hosted and told them to
take a look at the things done and source code created by Ivan as a start.
