Even though I don't really want to do this without Vikas' blessing,
since it is under a GPL type license, we could spin off a project on
source forge (Hey Vikas get involved here okay). This is one that I
would like to be involved in too. I have some rather strong feelings
about montioring software and SNIPS comes closes to meeting those in a
freely available product.

I'm still running the Nocol 4.4 beta because there are a few bugs in
SNIPS that are just unacceptable and I haven't been able to fix them
yet. I would want to use SNIPS as the basis though, Vikas did some
really good work on the rewrite, the code is a lot cleaner than Nocol.
