October 2009 CRCF thoughts

I want to get a quick solution for eWicht with CRCF or so. The discussion on german drmb (usenet) to this topic seams to be quiet dead. Suggestion from drmb, to look at other OpenSource projects in the net like JMRI. I also have found RocRail - I like this project. Maybe there will be an eWicht with RocRail?
