This is nice :) It's not as user friendly as I wished but the power I
get should compensate for the learning curve. I certainly look
forward to a user friendly "authoring MPL algorithms" documentation.

Kudos, and more power to MPL. Please accept my comments as
constructive criticism. I wish to use MPL in a project soon so I
figured I wanted to badger you now, rather than later :-)
