I will. I CCed it to you, because we discussed in IRC and because I value your 
input. 

Besides: Yes, I can access my Mails from abroads, though I needed to readup on 
dbus first :)

The file is available in Cython and should be used directly from the Cython 
installation instead of being copied in.

That quesion isn't as easy as I'd like it to be. Sending messages to Mach 
should not be viral (shared memory is even used to avoid the viral nature of 
the GPL by corps), but a direct translation from one langage to another is a 
derived work. 

Need to read up more on the options. I am not sure if I can really avoid the 
problems when using Cython - need to check Cython infos.

It is v2 or later, I checked that first :)

I'll need to talk to anatoly about that.
