      No problem - I've also re-sent my initial message in English. I read &
      write more English than Dutch anyway, so that's no problem.

      Bram told me about an idea to create some sort of overlay-window from
      a plugin (or something similar). That way, the text component can stay
      the same, and we could still be able to add small graphical elements.

      The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
      capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
      safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
