It should not be difficult to implement the same thing with a more generic
form of tables and a few rulesets. And it's hardly that difficult to
design one which is flexible enough for the things needed.
Might even turn out to be faster in the end.

But no, I'm not volunteering. I'm having big problems getting enough time
for my projects as it is...

So maybe I should shut up now.
