Kirsten's Viewer Discontinued

As every major Second Life blogger has pointed out today, Kirsten's Viewer will no longer be maintained due to personal issues. Kirsten's Viewer is a 3rd party viewer favored by many of Second Life's best photographers and machinimists.
On the plus side, Kirsten's Viewer is licensed under the GPL and hosted on SourceForge which means that the project could be picked up or forked and continued. Alternately, code from Kirsten's Viewer could be integrated into other viewers (e.g. Firestorm/Phoenix) - I would think the shadows implementation would be extremely desirable as other TPV's I have tried implement shadows poorly (meaning they really just don't work).
