Absolutely. I think there may be some additional notes elsewhere but
this page explains is pretty much the plan. Now we'll need to start
coding this in C and Perl.

Our development effort is led by volunteers so any help coding this will
be greatly appreciated... Further down the road the new thresholds
library should be part of official C an Perl libraries to make writing
plugins in both languages much easier. Those libraries will handle other
aspects like argument passing, output, etc.

Thank you,
