At this time, we have decided to report the public release of the patchs since
we still have to clean the whole thing, fix some bugs and generalize the
application. But we are roughly four to work on this, as a sideline activity.

For the documentation, a big part of the workshop is not for public release but
for classroom (since lots of pictures come from books). However, our
experiments with this system along with discussion of the public reaction is
now in a paper draft that will remain on my desktop for the next month. This
will also include a patchs description. The paper will be on once achieved. Except if it is published
(electronically) somewhere else. But since we are four authors, it might be
long ... (?)
