Ok, good to know! Depends on the time involved with it, but support for 
FAKK2 might be a good thing too. I was talking with Ritual's CEO yesterday 
at QuakeCon about it, and he obviously thinks it would be great :-) Getting 
Quake1 support in first might be better for the buzz, I don't really know. 
I'll keep you guys posted on what's happening anyway, I still need to 
finish up a lot of the module transition before others can start hacking 
into it. There may be some open tasks though, for which I would gladly 
accept patches. I'm thinking about listing the interfaces required by the 
editor in a seperate XML file and parsing it in (instead of the 
g_RequiredModules struct we are currently using) .. I will probably add 
that as a bug report / enhancement thing.
