Thanks Matt.  Doesn't involve much.. just fork the repo on github and 
start adding any features that you think would be cool to have. :)  
(I'll continue to take pull requests and do little tweaks here and 
there.)  I updated the TODO section on the readme for all the things I 
think should/could be done.  For example, I began implementing a "Goto 
Step" command but I never actually implemented the StepDetector class to 
do all the work.  So seeing how that hooks up and implementing the class 
might be a good starting point.  Feel free to make any design decisions 
you want to.
