I recommend using CVS if you're interested in the bleeding edge;
there's been a lot of progress after alpha1. We are preparing for 
alpha4, but unfortunately the problems you describe below will not
be solved by it.

Not a wonder. It's a full rewrite and much functionality is still
missing. If that's a problem for you, you should probably wait
until 0.8beta1 which we'll release when everything should be there.

Not there yet.

You don't, yet. Edit the Java code.

See above.

See the javadoc of Fallback, for the reasons for these: we need a version
of the system in pure java as a fallback before we can really implement
everything using the structure.

It enables you to type in jython commands. Useful for debugging.

Currently, it does nothing.

In CVS, the doc/ directory. And the javadocs.
