easiness being in the eves of the beholder, that's not as good

That's what I have been wanting to do all along but that is a lot of  
things to install … successfully and to learn. Which is why I have  
applied my standard policy in such cases: wait and see.

It seems indeed that even I should be able to use it. And, as I said  
before, that would vindicate my standard policy. (But I still want to  
learn TiKZ)

While I am at it, why "(and TeXShop)"? Does TeXShop have to know  
about Sysquake? (I haven't done my homework yet.)

In any event,
Grateful regards
