Yes I have, and in a very different context too I might add.

I agree with Philippe, even when the new revision comes out, it is
probably _very_ similar to the current RFC (if I understand it
correctly, the only problem is the IANA numbers?). 
Starting the work of integrating the implementation me and Philippe has
done and been using would be a great start as it is already tested in
two very differnt context for several weeks. It would also allow others
to implement and test any less subtle requirements of RFC4590 that are
yet unimplemented in our patch.
