Could some of the GRASS preprocessing tools you wrote be adapted as 
actors in Kepler?  Could they be deployed as web services?  It would be 
really helpful to get some of the preprocessing tools available in that 
environment, so anything you could do to help chad get that worked out 
would be greatly appreciated.
