Yes, that is correct. I think I might pick up the project soon again,
once I get my net connection back. To any interested people, please
contact me.

My reason for halting development was that I learned of planned release of
Harmonia for around Novemeber/December so I thought I would wait and see
what they did on many issues I hadn't resolved yet. Now a release for
Harmonia apears indefinite and I still wanted to have a gpf-like library
at hand so I think I will continue.

Also if any from the Harmonia project is listening, since your project is 
intended for open-source use, I think you could benefit from a more open
development process. You could continue to work on research, but also you
could see more applications of your framework, get bug fixes, and
feedback. There are many great ideas in your project and I would like to
see them put to use.
