I did post the old version (that worked on a much older Spirit trunk,
not the current release) on the Spirit list a long while ago. I meant
to update it and give it a better interface and a karma output too
then give it to Spirit as an example, I just need to get motivated to
give the little amount of time that I have available, to it. ;-)

(*hint* poke me to get it done, random emails, that helps a ton).
