Sounds perfect. Indeed it should be reported against POFileSpell. If
you do that, please mark it as affecting c-a-t-t and add c-a-t-t
usertags though, using the documentation listed in the c-a-t-t README

I'm glad to see people using it :)

Please note that there were 3 implementations of this idea:

My ugly unmaintainable list of shell commands on a wiki page:


My initial attempt at writing something maintainable:


Jakub Wilk's much cleaner and better initial implementation of the same:


He didn't want to work on it any more and his version was much better
