(we're talking about something that had been discussed a little over a
year ago, so I'm bringing that person into the conversation... it's
worth a shot to see if more people are interested in assisting)
Long time no speak. :) It looks like there's some current discussion
going on regarding the path highlighting. I know you really wanted to
work on this a while back. So, I figured I would CC you to get your
input as well as to ask if you'd still be interested in helping us work
on it. I hope all is well (and that this email address is still good). :)
