Oh, I already have a list. B^)

I believe this has been resolved to be an Apple bug/behavior. I can
try to dig up the emails that were exchanged on the Apple Bluetooth
dev list, but it boiled down to a behavior in Apple's drivers.
Nothing we, at the application layer, can do about it.

Go to the "Window" menu and select "Show IR Info". Be sure to enable
the IR sensor and that you point the Wiimote at the IR emitter bar. I
believe you'll be pleased. "Mouse mode" for IR and accelerometers

I understand. Yes, we should have some online documentation and/or a
readme that lists the contributors.
Maybe we could add names to the copyright notice at the beginnings of
the files? (I'm not big on the whole copyright notice thing.)

#1 Classic Controller support. This was partially in 0.5, but I
pulled it when I merged my branch. I didn't feel it was ready, and
the new Quartz Composer UI stuff was/is not finished.
After that things get murkier. There is a feature request tracker on
the sourceforge site and there are some good requests there. Someone
contributed Mii transfer code way back when, and that was in the
process of being added when things went quiet - it'd be nice to finish
Sound support would be cool.
I'd also like to see where the other Wiimote driver efforts are at.
Over at Wiili.org there are a couple of open source libraries
available that we may be able to learn/steal from and possibly
P.S. I sent this to the dev list, too. I've rethunk my choice to kill
the dev mail list. Maybe I'll kill the dev forum.
