I thoroughly agree, Walter. As I've said before, I think we should just get a *basic* function working in beta, then add features later to evolve the function. I added features to mine not only to match yours, but, in the case of the edit keys for example, to show what could easily be done with mine. I agree that we should not add any more features at this point. (Just add to yours, if you like, features to match mine).
