Valiant effort, taking on the PAF task. A few things I would like to 
note, however:

* I have not had time to fully document the PAF format in the Wiki and 
will not have a chance to for at least a few more days. Some of what I 
have written is probably wrong.

* I am trying to understand the format based on the free decoder. If you 
would like to try to work with that to understand the format, more power 
to you. Do not plagiarize it, though, as the license is ambiguous.

* There is only one, incomplete PAF sample available. I am working my 
contacts to get more, though.

If you still want to work on this task, I'm sure it's completely doable. 
However, I have added some more game-related qual. tasks recently as well.
