That's one of his qualities and should be greatly appreciated. Alex EXPLAINS
things and allways figures out the PYTHONIC way to do things. For me it
always is a pleasure to read Alex' answers. It' s high time that Alex writes
a book, isn't it? Consider this: A book has to save you time. If one writes
too much you can pick out what you need for your problem at hand. If one
writes too little, the book is a waste of time.

Franz
