Hi Sebastian,

If you find bugs or want to recommend an enhancement, please post them
to this mailing list as code fragments or patches (please submit each
issue as a separate message). If they are things that I think should
be incorporated or looked at, I will add them to the TODO list and
reply to your post and generally track each issue through the mailing
