Now that reply is somewhat late, but real life keeps me busy these days... It
would indeed be interesting to include your work in diagnostics, or at least be
able to use it from within diagnostics (meaning you do you roll your own library
or the like with a nice API).

Florian, I couldn't find anything on your web-page. Are you still interested in
that project?

Thanks,
Michael
