I hope to be uploading draft #13 next week. I don't have update access
to the sandbox nor development CVS. I don't use the sandbox on my
development machine so I don't know whether or not this would be
convenient. Even using the development tree I have a little difficulty
keeping up.

"similar" doesn't do Jens draft justice. I lifted that idea in toto
from his system. I probably would have done it much sooner but
it wasn't obvious to me from the documentation how it was intended
to be used. Then I had the problem of overriding it which lead
to the "split" facitly which should satisfy everyone .
