My bad! This message slipped my eyes. :-(

Ok, I confess, this was a bit unfair..

Sorry to say that I've a similar problem here :-)

Well, I'm probably a little bit different than you: If I don't make 
notes, I can not remeber anything I thought it would be cool to 
implement after a month has passed.. (And I did not expect fully blown 
technical docs - god beware!)

So it won't be seen as cluttering the list here, if I do post some of my 
own ideas for comments?

No - I don't see it that way. It's just that I've a slightly different 
directory layout (only for my personal taste) and that I'm trying to 
figure out how good my idea of a backend was/is. I surely don't want to 
duplicate any work in other areas ..

Ok, probably my impression came from missing some messages on this list 
and too loosely following the changelogs..

Sorry for all the noise,
