I haven't done any Klein hacking in over a year. Just don't have time for it these days. I'd love to see Klein become more fleshed-out and usable, but there's lots of work left to do. (http://kleinvm.sourceforge.net/todo.html has an incomplete list.) If you're interested in taking a crack at it yourself, feel free to fork the GitHub project (https://github.com/AdamSpitz/klein), and I'll be glad to answer questions to help you get going. :)
