I have to take offence to your comment "I will not let anyone else implement it". I always thought the philosophy of the project was "he who writes the code, writes the rules", so if someone else implements this, are you saying you will block its submission? This may be a minor issue in itself, but if that is, in fact, what you are saying it represents a very serious shift in the project philosophy. That would deserve, I would respectfully suggest, an open discussion of its own.
Another indication of the "Do as I say, not as I do" attitude. Thom, last I checked, you do not 'own' this system. No wonder people don't want to step up to help with development work... The attitude here has to change!
