Hi all,

As the address babel at braams.xs4all mainly receives spam this discussion landed 
in aa spam folder Where I spotted it just now.

I will be leaving for a family holiday this weekend so I am not able to do 
anyhing related to babel for the next coupe of weeks.
Pleas remind me when I am back (in august) and we'll work something out to 
incorporate this into the main stream of Babel.
I have a lot of other update requests and bug reports lying around so it is 
high time that I do some work and create a new release.

Kind regards,

Johannes Braams
