It is my thesis project, but I don't need to finish: my supervising 
professor is happy for my work and told me to code as much as I can, but 
fortunately I have no mandatory goal to reach.
This doesn't mean that I'll abandon gencli as soon as I graduate: I'd 
like to finish my work at best, and if I can get payed is much better! :-)

Thanks for the suggestions, they will be useful. I read the student FAQ 
but I missed the one of starting early: it seems that it's fine, so 
there should be no problem for this.

ciao Anto
