I am working on something but it takes awhile in POV, especially when 
trying to answer to the constraints of
a) coming up with something even worth doing, ie something more than a 
model someone could knock off on their own in a few hours
b) coming up with some sensible 'parametizing' of the model
c) coming up with a bullet-proof implementation that answers to the 
necessary standards set out, but also to the scrutiny of the community here.

So in short, as it stands, the idea I had had is not worth releasing at 
this point.  There are both current bugs in the implemetation I have as 
well as overarching questions about the worth of the models even if I 
did get the bugs out.

I think the subject is just fine, in fact more than just fine, I really 
enjoyed researching the category for ideas.  My own inclination was 
toward more antique office accessories and I was facinated to find sites 
catering to collectors of such things.
