If I manage to scrounge up enough bloody time (stupid salary jobs, they rape you
because they know they can!) I'd be more than glad to take a hack at it, maybe
some of my quakeforge experience will help (rrriiggghtttt) ;p

I like the module idea, since there are a few quake engine games i'd like to be
able to edit with the Linux version of GtkRadiant...such as Heavy Metal: FAKK2
(i'm in the linux beta for it at the moment...), Quake 1&2...

For those that someone else doesn't hack up, i'll be more than glad to try :)
But anyway, at the very least i'll volunteer for attempting the Quake 1 .map
module. I've played with darkplaces/quakeforge (and contributed a few
patches), so I might understand it enough to hax0r something.
