> I worry that I might be "splintering" sam

I am (very low-key) maintaining sam as it is, just doing bug fixes and adding
ports \x19(ie making sure that configure works for any new platforms).
Sometime in the future, if time permits, I will try to remove any hardcoded limits
(like the 512 characters samterm -> sam message limit).
I will not attempt to add features.

You have clearly a much broader scoop in your interest for sam.
Perhaps we complement each other? I maintain sam as it is, you enhance it?
Effectivly creating two sams, ofcourse. Presumably sam-as-it-is will stop beeing
used, and that does not matter to me since I am not doing anyhting anyway.

However, have you looked at wily? This is generally considered as a alternative to sam,
and it has loads of the things you seem (to me) to be interested in. Perhaps it would be better
to devout your energy to wily instead?

Best Wishes, Bengt
