This looks like interesting work, but doesn't address my earlier question:

What happens when you apply Schanuel's construction, which works with any infinite abelian group, to other groups than Z?  When G = Z^n, it looks to me like you get the algebra of n-dimensional matrices over R (any "almost endomorphism" of Z^n seems to be expressible as f+o(1), where f is a linear map), but what about other groups?
