There is definitely interest here at Kitware. Some of the developers have
made some forays in this direction. Our challenge of course is to find the
time and money to make this happen (contact me directly about funding),
let's see what the community thinks and see if some sort of plan emerges. I
personally would love to see this happen,

Thanks for expressing your interest, and hopefully starting the ball
