Sure.  When do you want to have it done by?

No problem.  (Boy, I'm really spoiled with these nice Sun 21" monitors ;-)

Will do.

'Warning'.  I was desperately seeking something that sorta made some kinda
sense ;-)  Better names gladly accepted!

I was thinking of it as warning rather than state, but I can
go with state too.  One thing I think I'd rather do is put them
in such a way that they will tend to sort together, as in StateD,
StateN (or maybe State_D, State_N), etc...  (or, if you go the 
direction I was going, Warnings_N).  Comments?

> 4) Do you have orcallator.cfg.in patch to plot the new data?

I've hacked something into my cfg file, but I want to improve it a bit
first - the text on the left margin does not fit...

Can do (assuming I have time before you need it ;-)
