If no one asked or complained there would be no progress. I think you 
misnterperted my intentions, which were to make the tool easier and more 
functional for everyone. A lot of complex tasks can be accomplished with 
a 1 line amalgamation of grep, awk, perl, etc. This doesn't mean we 
shouldn't build tools that simplify those tasks, hence the portmaster 
tool itself.

You assume my level of commitment because i didn't produce code before 
asking the author for his opinion? Ok..
