Maybe you're right here, but you already know the situation : you have 
say 5 or 6 files, about 800 lines of code. In some cases it's rather 
simple (what I did with QScintilla), others are longer and you need time 
to write a basic app showing the problem.

Ok, I'll try to do this next time.

I do not try to hide myself, these are just my initials (even more, my 
blog adress : kib2.webfactional.com and my mail one).

C++ can be ugly, like all langages sometimes...it all depends on 
programmers :)
