No, not the umpteenth person looking for one. I want to actually set
out to try and build one. I'm still in the early stages of scoping,
architecturing and prototyping (read: not ready to share anything
yet), but still there's a few questions I would like to get feedback on:

1) Would there be any demand for such an open source initiative at
all, or is everyone seriously needing this type of application using
The Real Thing anyway?

2) Would anyone be interested in collaborating? The core and GUI code
are not really suitable for collaborative development (yet), and
anyway not the real issue (although I'm open to any suggestion and/or
wishes regarding the user experience). What the project _does_ need
however in order to get serious at some point, is a lot of brains put
into the actual music creation routines, which I'm designing from the
start to be easily contributed to. It's in Java and I'm trying to put
in as much convenience methods as possible, so a lot of programming
know-how is not really necessary to contribute. What I'd rather need
is people with a lot of musical know-how, like voicing theory or
in-depth style knowledge, and just enough formal thinking to be able
to put their ideas into some form of algorithms (if Java is a problem
I'm willing to accept any for of pseudo-code as well...).

3) Is this the right place to ask? (Probably should have put this as
1)...). Seriously, if you have any suggestions where else I might put
this up, please let me know as well.

If there are some 'yes's out there, I'll be happy to post more information.
