... i have some working code...

if anybody wants to contribute, just ring a bell. i'll create a
repository for it (for now it's in the ui-iv-iu repository, inbetween
other projects)

with a bit of luck it can also be used as a replacement for the story

i will further work on it after the release of 1.6... except if 1.6
takes forever to be released...
