The whole point of the JSF is to promote PROTOCOL not software. That 
was the intent and rationale. When Jer was first driving the idea of 
the JSF, he was very clear that the idea was to separate the protocol 
from the implementation. The JSF is built on that concept.

Well, let's see....Sheath and TSB have disappeared. Jer is busy with 
stuff (not sure what). I've moved on to other projects as well (Nitro, 
being one of them).

Basically, people move on when they feel the functionality is 
relatively stable and complete. This is an open source project -- 
people don't necessarily stay around just to keep other people happy.

Bummer, huh?
