I'm not sure, I guess it depends on what level of "finished" you're
aiming for. Getting something basic running shouldn't be too hard, but
a full replacement (including fragment processing) would probably be
too much work. Of course I'd rather write it myself :-) but I guess
that's not going to happen.
