Not right now, as I've mostly been hacking on the code alone. What you could 
do is look at it more closely, and identify a few areas which you think would 
need improvement. Once you've got one or a few points, tell us, and we'll work 
out a strategy how this stuff gets fixed.

The downside of this is that you get to do some conceptual work, the upside is
