Yes, I agre you have done a great job by taking on this task. I know you've done a lot of work and that you will be forced to continue doing that to make all this work out nicely.

Still, one of my main concerns is that we should be able to help out. To distribute responsibility to enable parallell work and less focus on single persons.

I'll be happy to do so. Gimme a few days and I'll get back on this subject. If we do this the right way, we should be able to re-use source and ideas from the current implementation, even if we re-organize and improve the inner workings. But I'll be back with more soon.

Ok, I accept that task too! :-)
