I did a complete rewrite which is in test-phase on my system now.
It is not that much complicated as the 2.5 and a hell lot more explained
as I really have my probs with the code of 2.5 :(
Only one thing I want for myself to be added, so working on that,
and then need to translate some german comments, too.

If you want me to publish I could give it one push more.
