I would be glad to be of any assistance I can be in this matter. I think
wine is a great project, and I have been looking for the right project to
immerse my self in. I think I've just found it :-)

Why? This seems liks something that can be done incrementally. Kevin is
interested in doing it. Is there any reason to wait? Kevin should be aware
of what he's getting himself into, of course, but otherwise it's his call.
