Reinhard, you are making some much great effort that it's sometimes hard to follow docs list.

I've read them quite carefully and I think they look good. I will try to follow all instructions
and build a block to see if there is no 
typos and everything is really clear. Expect more useful comments soon.

I was already thinking about it but I do not have that much free time to make it really well.
If no one else offers his help I will try to 
produce some useful pieces, though.
