This is a case for a plugin probably. This would speed up the process while
retaining the centre of gravity with the developers. -glamm- isn't your
average user-written ado. It's a major piece of intellectual work, and is
really well supported with a website (www.gllamm.org) documentation etc.
Sophia, Andrew and Anders are doing a remarkable job and perhaps more need
support than to have their software made official.

But what do they think themselves? Any plans chaps?
