Don't worry, there is no reason to hurry.

Actually that was the first problem that I had --guests not being able
to access files-- and I removed the authentication code from the file
serving code.

I am making the tests on my own computer and I do not have an open port
to serve web-pages on it. Maybe Javier (who is also in this list) can
build a Moodle instalation for this. Actually, I would not recommend you
to update an "in production" Moodle installation to the bzr version of
vizcosh because some things are broken (lacking translation strings, the
"course backup" functionallity is not fully working, etc.).
