Hello Niels Horn and anyone interested,

I implemented all the suggestions except for the last one which is
still in hot debate and pushed my local changes to gitorious.

And guys, maybe I won't have enough time to heavily develop it in the
following month. I have to prepare for a examination hold in 9th, Jan
2010. However, I will follow any discussions here and anyone can
create an "Issue" in
http://code.google.com/p/sbo-dev-helper/issues/list where I will check
after the examination. Thanks for everyone participated~ ;-)
