   I've run into some memory management and buffer overflow issues in piolib 
which I think really should be addressed.  As well the data interface is hard 
to mesh with existing programs without doing copies (which are quite 
expensive).  There are other items but I'd like to finish the plugin code 
before I formalize the list of issues.  I might be  able to work around some 
of them.

   If you are subscribed to the mailing list you can follow the development as 
it actually happens.  All the CVS commits are posted with summaries and 
occasional diffs here, and bug reports are echoed here.
