Silentium means YES? (Re: Bugreports about Xresources YES or NO?)

Because nobody responds, I'll take it for a YES votum and file bug reports
against every tiny misfeature in every xresource file I take a closer look
at. I need them to work, because I want to translate them, and I need a lot
of changes, so be aware.

Gosh, am I a nasty boy! :-)
