I'm glad to hear that. Since I'm also semi-moving too, dio development
is stalled ATM (I was on holidays in Spain, but will be back in
Belgium the day after tomorrow). So, I will wait to see what Anselm
comes with and maybe we can join efforts or re-use some code.

PS: I suppossed that it was possible that both projects were related,
but probably Anselm code will be better so...
