We always welcome people working on Loadstone code and contributing patches
though this has rarely happened.  If you do plan on hacking some code, it's
coded in C++ (using the Symbian Series60 dev libs and API). 
It's not a pleasant coding experience but it beats Python into the ground. 
Whoever got people interested in coding in Python should really be shot or
at the very least given a stern talking too!  It's unbelievably inefficient.
OK, that's a rant for a different list on a different day!

The archives would have indeed given you an answer to your question. 
Stay-tuned for the next release!
