I've agreed to stay on one more year on the Squeakland, Inc. board to  
help smooth the transition (though if a more appropriate volunteer  
steps forward, I'm quite willing to step down at the end of this year.)

In any case, like Bert and Yoshiki, I intend ("as much as possible")  
to stay out of the actual development process from now on.

So... etoy developers of the world:  your moment has arrived!  It's  
very gratifying to see that several people have already stepped  
forward; may the community grow and flourish!
