Great idea. Since VUE is based on Java, it should be possible to get it going on a wide variety of platforms beyond what we've tested it on. We will try over time to test it on various platform. Hopefully though the community of these platforms will step in and contribute to this process.
We have considered it. Unfortunately, we cannot fit it into our priorities right now. We have extensive commitments based on our grant which leave very little leeway for other projects. So, all we can do is hope that somebody from the community takes ownership of this mini-project. We already had a user create an Ubuntu package for VUE.
