Perfect, thanks ... I have commit access to ports, so I can commit it 
later over the weekend ...

I am personally terrible at 'human friendly features', especially when it 
comes to text ... its why most web pages I design seem ultra-utilitarian 
unless I talk someone into writing things nicely ...

IMHO, this whole thing isn't meant for my edification, but to provide 
*us*, as a project, with some overall numbers to advocate/market ourselves 
better ... *please* feel free to submit any patches to the script that you 
(or anyone else) feels needs to be added to improve things ...

The more ppl involved, the more successful the endeavor will be ...
