let me bring this to the general mailing list:

Very cool. I think this is very much going in the same directions that I 
always hoped it would morph (but never really found the time to make it 
happen). In particular, the ability to store an arbitrary number of 
properties on particles, and the ability to generate particles using 
different probability distributions was very high on my list! I'm glad 
to find all of this in your implementation already!

I'm looking forward to seeing all of this getting into place slowly. 
Thanks a lot for working on this! (But now go back and finish your PhD 
thesis! ;-)
