I really have to apologize for being such a novice to the "open source community" 
(if I just forget for a second mod_backhand http://www.backhand.org).

I did not realize that just 8 weeks after releasing a major software as an open source, 
a full week (!!) after raising a question on a mailing list without getting the 
"correct" response is all it takes to get an e-mail with this tone.

A temporary response: stay tuned, be a bit more patient, and give a little more credit.
I believe it won't hurt in this case ;)
