By the way: The "official" version 0.0.9 isn't compiling either...

On the one side I see that for the development work it would be useful
to get it integrated in the latest kernel but on the other side I see
a package with nice goals but doen't work even a little bit
-> It's simply to early to integrate it into the kernel IMHO

I just subcribed to the mailing list and I'm sure I will contribute to it as
soon as I have time for such things again...

I work hard on understanding how it works and if I get the trick
I'll be glad to support development...

I wouldn't complain if it just worked a little bit but it don't...
Okay, I have to admit that the kernel compiles but it didn't take
a long time to realize that having just the compiled kernel
restricts use of the whole system.
To get a bonus of it you have to have at least the libraries
which don't compile :(( ....
