Fair enough.

I would agree.

Given that I spent a good proportion of my time since 2007 writing INX,
and that I have other more pressing things that need doing, like
following the vocation that I neglected for years to help GNU/Linux,
I'd say there won't be a translation, then.

If people want one, I guess they will have to put in the hard work that
I put in and am still putting in whenever possible. The code is there.

Thanks for your interest.
