Well, Pat seems convinced that the most important thing would be
getting a good wrapper for the struct class.  Again there is most
probably a lot of work involved even if that is involved.  But what
I'm excited about is that this is not some pipe dream but something
that is very doable and just a matter of time.

Well, if we dont have the time to cough up code the least we can do is
generate ideas, stimulate discussions and get everyone excited.  :)
