Thanks for the response Brian.  I'll try again.

Good points.  I'm well aware of the pains of creating community.  It's
not an easy thing.  One thing that drew me to Mondrian was the idea of
working with a community.  (I have a homegrown app that does 80% of
what I need.  Mondrian APPEARS to have all that I need.  But if I
can't get aggregations to work, then it's worthless to me....)

I'm willing and able to help.  I've even fired up eclipse and am now
running in it.  But right now, it's sort of the blind leading the
blind, since I'm leading myself.  If that's the case, then it's easier
for me to go back to my homegrown python solution....
