I'm not excluding anyone, or criticising "the community" (not a good term,  
but I brought it up). If I would be critisicing anyone, it would be me,  
for not having the same interests as the majority.
maybe with that I wanted to say is that I wrote this patch to cater for  
another community (classical musicians that play complex music), and so I  
thought that it wouldn't be that interesting to this one. like as if I  
take massage courses it's not going to be an interesting topic in the list  
- although in the next floss book sprint I could offer massages, instead  
of portuguese desserts.

surely someone could get something interesting out of it, but from the  
posts I read everyday, and the people I know, it's not something many  
people are going to say "at last someone did this". more people might say  
that about the bezier curve data-structure abstraction I'm trying to  
finish, but have no time for now.
