+1. Especially since I cannot remember, when I typed a package name the last time. Usually
this is done by my IDE.


Another change:

- Get rid of the current list handling

Currently any value is parsed for list elements and if the list delimiter is found, it will
return only the first value. IMHO a list should only be returned if 'getList' is called (with
an optional delimiter parameter), but a call to 'getString' should return the complete value.
