Hi Ruben

Regarding the snapshots feature, is it possible to get a sneak peek at it?
Is the branch that feature is being developed public?

I'm interested to hear how you are developing that feature, interaction
with the DS and VMM drivers, etc. I am planning on working on a similar
feature very soon.
