Call for utrace survival



My project kmview is based on utrace.
Utrace is a wonderful tool to support partial virtualization, I have found no
other tools providing a tracing interface of user processes by kernel modules.
-systemtap, dtrace: are mainly for kernel debug
-LTTng: creates traces for off-line debugging (ust needs the program to be 
compiled for tracing, it does not work on existing binaries).

utrace can be a fast and smart replacement for the old/slow ptrace.

Now the kernel patches are getting obsolete...

This is a call for utrace users and developers to see if there are enough
(human) resources to continue the project.
I am considering to fork the subset of the project needed by kmview, but
if there are enough other projects and developers interested to utrace survival
we can work together.
