I agree with all above - by all means, please do contribute it!  But
also, on the project page, provide links to other existing projects
that try to do the same thing and give (at least) a cursory overview
of the differences.  This last part isn't *essential* (ie, you'll be
forgiven for not doing it) but is extremely helpful and goes a long
way towards helping alleviate some of the trouble of 'contrib creep'

The module sounds great, and I look forward to having a chance to play
around with it!
