This is great to hear.

I can certainly understand the frustration that I sense in your email but I 
think Rob is right on all points. I can't foresee a lot of community support 
as long as you or MAGIX or any future owners of the code can essentially 
cripple the project by deciding to halt distribution of the binary.

By the way, I remember a lot of individuals early on interested in working on 
translations. What ever happened to those efforts? I imagine being able to 
ship localized versions of Xtreme would be quite valuable. This also might be 
a good way to recruit some of the noncoders over at TalkGraphics.
