The main hold-up on that front has been difficulty obtaining agreement
with Microsoft about the details of the contract that we need to sign
in order to be able to develop and distribute such a plugin.  But after
long negotiations, we have recently reached agreement on that.
The contract is currently undergoing a hopefully final review by
Melbourne University's lawyers.  So, unless they decided to throw
a spanner in the works, the IP issues should be resolved soon.
In comparison with those, the actual development should be easy ;-)
With a bit of luck we might be able to release at least a beta-release
by around the end of the year.
