Cool, I just wanted a round up of where we are at.  The last piece  
for 0.4.1 sounds like documentation for extended services.  You  
certainly have a better handle on it than I do.  Let me know if I can  
do anything to help.

On a tangental note, Kete (http://kete.net.nz/), has won the 3M award  
for innovation in libraries at the LIANZA conference in New Zealand.   
Kete uses ruby-zoom via acts_as_zoom to populate and query Zebra  
databases as you may remember.
