Thanks for your efforts. I have deleted the issues I agree with.

I am not sure wheter it would be better to write uid/gid. Is there an
accepted standard for thhis writing?

Is that compatible and does not generate decimal numbers with fractions?

Please try the changes, there are a few places where we hat to omit
gtx for obscure reasons.

I'll need to review the Y/n stuff you changed, there was no time at

After the issues mentioned above have been resolved, I'll apply your
patch in svn. Thanks for helping.
