I haven't had time to take a look yet, but hopefully will over the next
day or so.  Maybe between our two proofs-of-concept we can get together
something useful to a few people. :)

You can thank my co-worker Chad for that idea.  We're looking at adding
another feature to the mapper classes, optional input/output converters.
These would be optional callables which could do last minute conversions
of the data once its read from or about to be written to its source (a
field, a DM, an enumeration, etc.).

How about the wiki and IRC?  I've not been on IRC much over the last
couple of months, but have been checking in here and there lately.
Another nice option would be a CVS (or preferrably Subversion) sandbox
somewhere where we could collaborate on various PEAKish (sub)projects.
Perhaps we could setup a project site on Savannah or Tigris, or (egads)
