new maintainer

I've resumed my role as pysoy maintainer due to Zach's other committments not leaving enough time for him to continue the position. Zach will remain on as the distribution director and windows packaging lead.

Now that I've had time to review the work that's been done I've started work on an inter-component API and roadmap to move forward. Look for these on the wiki, and yes, they're open for discussion. The role of maintainer is to facilitate and mediate, not dictate.

After this is done we'll begin getting the codebase back into SVN. I feel it's important, especially given new developers joining us, that this be done in the next two weeks. Part of this process will include pruning developers who are no longer active by who works toward this goal.
