Noted. Sorry. Basically, the modeller code still sucks badly. I wanted to
fix it a lot earlier. I'm tempted to throw most of it away (keeping just the
class organisation and interfaces between them) and do it all a little
cleaner. But I won't have time for any gump development for at least a week
or two.

My approach when writing this code was to not worry a lot of about the
"real" data as its currently used, but focus on what I thought the metadata
should look like. Since that is in my head and not written down, I'm making
it harder for you to work on Gump3.

Frustration is a often a good nudge to start refactoring or rewriting. You
should feel free to throw what I wrote away if you think that makes sense;
you won't hurt my feelings :-)
