Calling all dojo members- do you want to see an updated version of book module ready for Drupal 6?
The new back-end (and parts of the UI) will only be possible if this patch for the menu system gets committed: http://drupal.org/node/145058 (In fact without this patch, menu module won't work, so it's doubly important.)
Please take a little time and try this new code out. Both functional and code-level reviews would be greatly appreciated. Apply the patch to a clean checkout of HEAD, before you install the DB.
