Any plans for a RFXCOM plugin in the near future?

I've sent a request to RFXCom to see if I can get a copy of their communication protocol document. Once I see the protocol I'll know how easy/difficult the driver will be.

I have used the RFXcom for several years for power usage and various Oregon scientific weather data using a custom plugin I wrote.

I have details of all the comms if anyone needs it but since I already use Homeseer as well, I recently switched to RFXcom's readymade Homeseer plugin - it is a very good implementation and very easy to use and add external devices since it autodetects any broadcast it receives.

Dave - writing the full plugin in from scratch will be time consuming since you have to detect so many different external devices, each with their own communication protocol and standards. If anyone is up for the challenge though I am sure you will be:-)
