Multi-user would be -great-...and sounds like I'd have to wrap my brain
around a -much- larger part of the codebase to do it right.  Eventually,
yes, I could easily see myself going that far, as donating code back to a
project I've used would be great.  I'd like to start off a -tad- less
ambitious, as I've learned that biting off more than you can chew is a good
way to sour yourself on a project and then have a large amount of incomplete
code lying around that you never get back to.

However, I will take a look to see what's been asked about, proposed,
etc...see if I can make this something that might be compatible with a
possible, eventual larger implementation.
