If you feel you'll be okay getting a driver going starting from nothing but 
an email address, great!

Especially given that hardware would need to be supplied -- which ofcourse 
to some degree means committing upfront -- I would want to first flaunder 
around on my own a bit while judging whether or not I'd be capable in the 
first place and judging what information I'd need from the contact. I also 
expect the same holds for more subscribers so if you _are_ willing to start 
under these conditions, I'd say go for it.

I doubt it. There are only a few people on this list experienced enough to 
be able to say they'll be able to get a good result upfront and since they 
haven't been volunteering, I'm afraid you're as good as it gets! :-)

First thing is getting the hardware I guess. I'm quite sure that once things 
are working at least basically, there will be help available from this list.
