Thank you for outlining your plan. It makes perfect sense now that I see 
your bigger picture. I am amazed at all the wonderful contributions you, 
Andrea and others are making in ka-map. I owe you many thanks and only 
wanted to put another vote for this feature in case that mattered with 
the priorities. I agree working on 1.0 should be the priority :)

Best regards,
