Released a new library - now what?

I released a new library today. You can download it from my homepage.

But the big question is: what should I do with it?

This is a semester project, and although I spent a lot of time on it and I think it's useful in the proper hands, it's not something that I can ever see myself needing. I wrote it at the suggestion of the professor in the course, because he needed an implementation of the algorithm in question. Presumably he will get some use out of it. Maybe that's enough.

It's a pretty obscure little library. What it does is compare the distribution of a set of points in a multidimensional space against the uniform distribution, and returns a number that suggests how uniformly the points are distributed.

I've never taken a computer science class before, so this question hasn't come up for me before. I guess that most people probably don't write production-quality software, nor literate programs, for random semester projects.

What would you do?
