Uh, I am embarrassed that I have not noticed myself... I
always wrote multichannel as multi-channel. Maybe this is
because I had to learn that English does not usually compound
words (me being a native German speaker..), so I applied
that rule. ;-) Thanks for pointing this out, Tom!

Let me think about what to do about it.
We can still patch the docs/code...
but first I need to patch my brain. :-D

Cheers - Michael
