I know there are a few lurkers here who know and worked with Mark in the past.  
This is very sad news ...

He's written reference implementations of both server and client, and has been a vocal participant on all the mailing lists I'm posting this to.

I'm sad to have to report that Mark is now terminally ill, and is in hospice 

For now, at least, I'm told that Mark is at least somewhat aware. If anyone has brief well-wishing messages they'd like to send him, please post them to the <address@hidden> mailing list, and I'll forward them to Mark's long-term companion, Annie. I will also post updates to that list as I get them.
