It's very nice of you to offer. I think the biggest thing we could use help
on is documentation. Going over the documents, removing obsolete bits, clarifying
obscure stuff, etc. I don't want to step on Joshua's toes here so maybe he'll
correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the docs could use some work.
Otherwise, I can't think of a specific thing to point at and say "Work on that".
Maybe serial support?
