Hold up there, bud. :) If you start coding anything in C++, I would very 
much like to be a part of it. If you want, you can even forward me 
patches and I'll add them into the ALFS repository, at least until such 
time as Thomas sees fit to give you access.

I had already been thinking of trying to convert the C code I already 
have into C++ because of its ease of manipulating strings. Can we do 
that or would it be advisable to start from scratch? In any case, as I 
hope is obvious from my work so far, I'm deeply interested in alfs and 
I'd very much like to be a part of any coding done.

Are you willing to work with me on this?
