Bellville was one of the Libraries were William managed to place 
software as a pilot; and according to logs it worked quite well.

I also think that if we tried again we'd be successful in getting the 
software into libraries - given the governments current push for open 
source software, they really have no choice.

I have it listed as a project for early next year.
