Thanks for the info in the previous email.  I thought the webrev was 
java based but figured i should sanity check to make sure you :-)

Having a plugin would be great, especially for Netbean with its support 
for Project Keani in the latest release.  I am sure this would be very 
popular.  I have only poked at netbeans plugins myself.  But that can be 
phase two of the project...

I look forward to giving your new tool a try.

Again thanks for the feedback.  It is a little late in your part of the 
world isn't it? :-)
