Good point (I certainly stand guilty as charged). I'm willing to contribute 
but unfortunately too swamped to lead the project. E.g. if someone is willing to
make a list of things that could be ported from Kevin Murphy's toolbox or elsewhere
into OpenBayes and provide an example as a sort of a first pass at a design for an api 
I'd be willing to work on individual chunks. But so far it seems that everyone that originally 
signed up on the wiki is apparently in a similar situation.

Maybe Robert or Jarrod could point you in the right direction ?
