I would be delighted for you to do whatever you like with project b. In

It is true that Sword and ProjectB grew in fairly different ways and so
have fairly different interfaces - however I really do think we could
work on some proxies so that I could use your code and visa-versa.

Please take a look - you will need to be a Java developer to get going
and a working knowledge of Ant will help you a lot.
