Hi Peter,

regarding detectors evaluation, one typical way to evaluate them in 
research is using VLBenchmarks 
<http://www.vlfeat.org/benchmarks/index.html>, a MATLAB framework for 
testing image feature detectors and descriptors which some parts are 
based on the original code 
<http://www.robots.ox.ac.uk/%7Evgg/research/affine/#software> of K. 
Mikolajczyk <http://www.inrialpes.fr/lear/people/Mikolajczyk>and others 
just uses only Vlfeat. However, OpenCV has a slightly implementation in 
C++ based on that mentioned original code [1 
In my opinion, if you are using this OpenCV implementation then the code 
you want to release should go in the existent vision_opencv 
<http://wiki.ros.org/vision_opencv> which has some implemented OpenCV apps.
