	Thanks for the suggestion, will look into it (though... the code in  
the branch already spent a long testing time in trunk, so I'd say 1.5  
it's pretty much ready to go and therefore we might not have much to  
merge in... but I'll look into just in case ;-)

	I'm in a bit of a rush at the moment so I'd love it if you could  
point me to a jump-start crash course on, if it exists (or  
if you can make one up on the fly ;-). Otherwise I'll look into it and  
figure it out a bit later, maybe tomorrow with more time.
