This was the post that made me a bit nervous ;)

Up to now I've been very happy and impressed with the ORBit2 package. 
I'd really like to tip my hat to the team for their work.  Someday down 
the road, when I've got the time, I'd like to offer my assistance, if 
the team is interested.  This is a package that I'd like to give back 
too when I can.

This project has me working 12-14 hours a day, 6 days a week, and I've 
put allot of stock in ORBit2 as our distributed IPC service.  Having it 
available has saved me months of development effort.  So any hint of it 
changing from an environment independent tool gets my attention real 
fast ;)  As long as it's libraries, APIs, Linux, and C, I'm happy :)

If I over reacted or misread the direction of the discussion, I apologize.

Again, thanks big time to the team that spent their late nights doing 
this one!
