I think he wasn't per se asking someone to write it for him. More along the
of asking:

a.) Has anyone done this?


b.) What resources did they use to do so?

To me, these questions show a lot more insight into this mailing list than
can I find a (patch|snippet) for XYZ code?"

I've not done this yet, but plan to. If you search through the archives,
search for
"appearance" and/or "introduction" as keywords.

I also saw a site that had the theory behind it and some rough code, but
was more
of a tutorial than example code. Lemme see if I can find it...

Can't seem to find it. I think it was a ROM-based site, but the principles
still apply.
Ahh well, off to the list archives with you. :)
