  in one year... i'll just finish my univerity, which means definately
less free time for tunes. since i've read the tunes.org pages my way of
thinking changed a lot about sw development. and as i'm a maximalist
now that i can see how much better it could be then the current java/c++
everywhere way, i can't stand programming in c++ anymore... :|

  but i'd be happy to work on any tunes/slate related eve if it's in c++.
(i know c++ very well, (poor me :))
