I know in the past when I've had problems and asked you on IRC or
posted my error here to the ML you were quick to respond and get it
fixed and working and uploaded a new version.  We all need coders to
be like that, and we appreciate that kind of work :)

I have to totally agree with this.  Just because a module is put into
CVS doesn't mean it shouldn't be spoken about or linked to on
get-e.org.  I strongly believe that the more modules we show to have
that are actively maintained, the more users will want to try it.  Yes
I know that since it's beta software, that's probably not the best
thing to do.  But if I were to look at get-e.org and saw a list of the
available modules, whether built in or not, it would surely grab my
attention and make me curious.
