I might be tempted, except that it requires agreeing to California
legal jurisdiction, which as someone outside the USA I would have to be
completely rocks-for-brains to do - and you say it wouldn't get me

build for me would involve quite a lot of wading in with a machete.
_Playing_ Empire tempts me, but not nearly enough to override the legal
jurisdiction issue.)

Well, if anyone has enough access to John Daleske to find out what the
current status of the code is, and, if it _is_ available, where it's
available from, I'd be most interested.
