If you're going to put a lot of effort into this, you might as well do it right.  If the code is written in C, and integrated into the current PGP development structure, you will get a lot more support from the open source community.

Perhaps someone else would be able to give you access to a C compiler on another system.

JMHO, of course.


p.s. If you ask my alter-ego (david@midrange.com) nicely, you'll probably be able to get a mailing list server to coordinate the development effort :)  (Buying him sushi helps too <grin>)
