Hey count me in!!

I'm a linux guy, but my main linux machine is an iBook so i can reboot 
into OSX as well. I would love to help you guys put together packages 
for linux/OSX and (long term future) integrate this into the debian main 
package selection.

But for the momet, we need to get some kinda versioning system etc. I'm 
impartial on how to do this. But what about an account over on 
sourceforge.net? We could get one for free.

I would be willing to devote some coding/packaging/documenting/debugging 
time to such a simple but useful tool!
