It would need a verified PD text for it to be considered :D

I greatly support this and pledge fealty. I hope everyone who sees this great opportunity will recognize it for what it is.

Not at all rude. I'm glad to see you're excited about it. :)

Currently, this play is waiting for someone to pick it up and coordinate it. I'm interested, but overloaded with other projects at the moment. If no one else gets to it after a few of my other projects finish, then I'll probably do it. No promises though! :mrgreen:

(P.S. I also brought this suggestion over to the Play Suggestions thread, so someone may see it there and pick it up.)
