There is still lots you could do if you are still game. Post your cvs  
woes here (or perhaps pd-dev is better) and we'll get you up to speed.

Just because I fixed my stupid mistake doesn't mean there isn't work  
to be done! ;)  I am sure that there will be other things to fix or  
contribute with [wiiremote].
