Bear in mind that this code is basically untested - I got it to compile,
and I think the changes are OK, but I'm sure I've added bugs along the

The pilot-link-0.12 way of handling buffers (with an explicit API for
buffer management) seems a lot conceptually cleaner than the old API.
However, in terms of getting stuff to compile, it's just a pain, since
it impacts a lot of code.

Does anyone know to what extent the code was copied-and-pasted from
other sources?  In particular, I got the feeling that the "mal" stuff
was a "copy and paste then slightly change" job, so perhaps we should be
getting the changes upstreamed into the source of that code.

You'll need to rerun the autotools; try running "autoreconf" in the top
level directory

Yes please!

I'm hoping that people can add more stuff to the wiki.

What I'd really like is some kind of roadmap.
