I'd like to contribute a new sample client which doesn't rely on  
reading from
an external file other than the dictionary first.  That should be  
fairly near
about as complete a release as we can make, and enable the client  
library to
be much more easily adapted to other projects.

After that, I'll tackle VSA support.

Thanks everyone!
