I've been mulling this over for awhile and I'm potentially willing to
write the WWN. I've been reading all of patches, devel, and bugs for
about a year now, so I keep pretty up to date with what's going on. I'm
a Senior at UIUC and my major is History, so I write quite often.
Let me know if you're interested.
