* James - busy lately; may have more time at the end of may.  Currently, I can do ~1-2 hrs per week from my limited free time.

I'd love to take responsibility for sieve.  As I have been implementing 
some extensions, I've seen many opportunities for code cleanup, bug 
fixes, etc.  That said, if there's anyone else with an interest and 
more time available than me, that person should take it.  (My $dayjob 
is unrelated to technology, so my current employer won't be sponsoring, 
though in the next ~18 months I'll be trying to get a tech-related 
job.)  To date, I have tried to make my changes be as minimal as 
possible to achieve the desired effect, in part to allow people (and 
myself) to understand each change I make.
