hello all,

I wanted to check back in about the continuing saga to port a dp9ik
patch upstream.

where I believe we left off in that discussion, there was advice to
make a roadmap, involving some kinds of software development
techniques I don't understand at all, to be completely honest... I
have tried to keep after that a bit and try to figure out a roadmap
based on what I have done before and what it would take to do this.

before I ever started on this project at all, I had looked into dp9ik
before to re-implement it in javascript for another project, so I do
know a little about the login process and how dp9ik works as a
pre-shared key authenticator for an encrypted connection. (not the
math behind that though! just ported what was necessary to javascript)

I started doing the same thing kinda, just back-porting stuff to send
a patch upstream. it rapidly started becoming as much of a mess as my
efforts to port to javascript, what was only C to C! I'm not a
professional here at all...

I did note it seemed helpful to have both types of plan 9 systems and
both types of drawterm because of slight differences in the keyboard
input

thanks everyone!
