Yep, I did try to infer the project management when I mentioned I had a 
tool for [execute "~thisproject.exe"], but my message certainly wasn
t well-composed :)

And Carlos, I am very curious about why you took the time to "de-spam" 
my e-mail address when you sent the message to the group anyway.  But, 
no need to satisfy my curiousity  :)

Hope you do find something which is right for you, which should be a key 
point.  To each his own.
