Hi Danny,

thanks for the information, I will definitely check it out!
Speaking of "checking out", should I check out the 'mzc' branch to be able to more conveniently inspect the code from under the 'phone' directory, or will this be merged into the 'master' branch?
(I've only worked with cvs and svn till now, so I don't know the developing practices under git)
