Hi Jeremy,
I think we're aiming for 2nd quarter of 2015, it depends a lot on when we
manage to have a sprint I'd say. Things are going forward, but there's
still work to be done.

Also we probably want to do some polishing in libkompare? For example I saw
there's quite some actual code in the .h files, that can be problematic in
the future and makes it really hard to maintain ABI and API.
