This is so cool! Waayy cool.


PS> I hope we get over the "which is the better meta-list" issue. We
really need a common meta-list library and we need it fast. I'd like
to see a layered approach. The most common core-functionality
should be quite simple in fact and does not need the full blown mpl.
I imagine the core will be used 95% of the time.
