LCD Backpack i2c for Pi?

Any hints/tips/pointers on getting the LCD Backpack to work with a Pi so that an LCD can be run using only two pins? Is this something where a whole library needs to be written (beyond my capabilities) or is there a way to pull something together using existing info, python, etc?

Essentially, a library has to be written - its not going to be easy unless you're very comfortable with writing python and i2c code

OK - thanks for the confirmation! Is this something adafruit would do or expedite for consideration (cash or other)?

We have a massive list of libraries to port - its on the list but sadly there is no ETA as to when we'll get to them!

You could post up on our Jobs board if you wanted to hire someone to do it! http://www.adafruit.com/jobs/
