Hello Brian!

It's been a while I had a look at that code. As far as I remember though 
the code is fairly decent not
taking the missing unit tests into account. There are a few todos, and 
also a pretty bad bug that I've fixed
but not committed. The TODOs include better parsing of auxiliary data, 
support for scatter-gather, addressed
messages. If you wish I can send you the latest patch that has the bug 
fixed and applies to 3.2. Do you want
this to be pushed to 3.3?
