At this point there is no official "alpha" release, so the "list" is virtual. I'm not ready to throw open the doors to the general public, because of the future potential for API breakage, but if anyone really, really wants to get their hands dirty now, they're welcome to, provided they can live with the possibility of having to make changes to their code in the future for the 1.0 release. BTW, these won't be changes every couple of days. They're likely to be just a couple of big changes that happen somewhere along the road to 1.0 that will come with plenty of warning. And unless you've already got 100,000 LOC written, even those won't be that big a deal. So PM'ing me is fine for now if you want to get early access to the code.

No, that was part of the Eureka moment. After coming up with lots of weird schemes that might or might not work very well, I finally decided to try using the normal Facets API. And guess what...it worked! So the secret is that there isn't anything special you have to do to make it work (other than making sure that all the right external libraries and packages end up being in the ST2 sys.path.
I could speculate as to why it just works out of the box, but since the creator of ST2 doesn't seem to provide much detail about how ST2 is written, I won't either
