I'm not familiar with shell script ... and within 2 weeks, I'll try.

That should be find.

Can't guarantee anything.

Never heard about them, sorry.

I will certainly be at the bottom of the list with such criteras...
That's not very enthousiastic, looks like the project doesn't have it's place on the dvd.
