At the risk of getting shoes thrown at my by my fellow mentors ...

I know something about the field of endeavour of this podling --
that's why I volunteered. I think that it is a very interesting
question as to how many qualified, interested, potential committers
are out there. Much of the work in the field is academic, and
professors tend to keep their <del>slave labor</del> graduate students
otherwise occupied. I'd be happy to be proved wrong, but, in a sense,
that's the question posed by this podling: who's out there?
Ironically, I might be writing a proposal this week for funding to
assign people of mine to work on it, but there's no telling where that
will go.
