This may be ancient history and history may have been my worst subject
in school, but I believe ButtonSnap was a product of the evil genius
Owen Winkler [1]. I do most of the TinyMCE maintenance for WordPress
but I never studied up on ButtonSnap because it was so capably
maintained on Owen's WP projects page [2]. Now I can't find there.

Owen, what's the status?

Is anybody else familiar enough with ButtonSnap to take over if Owen
has no interest in its maintenance? Apparently a lot of plugins depend
on ButtonSnap. The leading authority on the subject seems to be Kirk
of MaxPower [3].
