Good news and bad news... 
The good news is...it's definitely possible.  As a matter of fact, 
I've thought about it before and have basically planned out how to do it.  
Now for the bad news....it's on my list, but no one has been excited about

p.s.  Volunteers and funding contributions are always welcome!
