well, i'm definitely interested in someone doing something like this -
and my background is in CAD/engineering/materials with a bit of CAM,
so i might as well start things off.

i can't see any schematics/CAD drawings up on the wiki - can someone
point me in the direction of accurate, precise drawings of the
internals and the case?

if not, then to sean:
will FIC be releasing good engineering drawings of the component(s) or
will we be going down the route of measuring hardware and drawing our
own? if we are going the reverse-engineering route, is someone willing
to whip out their micrometer and a decent (open-source) CAD package
and make some up for us?
