Thanks for your interest :)

This gives me new motivation to overwork my patch!

I will try to find the time to commit a new sized-down version working 
with the current state of the Blender SVN repository as fast as possible!

Unfortunately I can only test my patch on Linux, as I do not have the 
money to pay for a working MS development environment.  Hope the 
MS port is not too difficult though :)

Greetings, Dietrich
