Yes, it was, so I updated it to latest specs some days ago. And will  
shortly update it to the MetaEngine changes.

Nice, though if you had just reminded me about it, I would have  
gladly updated it in the Wiki myself ;-).

No, not in docs, that's not really much more convenient than keeping  
it in the Wiki. *If* we keep it in SVN, then inside the regular  
source tree, making it super easy to enable it. Either by also  
including a .patch to enable it (with all the mods to configure,  
engines.mk, etc.), or even as a full engine which is disabled by  
default. That way, it would be easy to test it regularly.
