Please don't get me wrong. I am sharing only my experience with the TWO
packages with which I have experience with someone who asked for input.
Nothing more and nothing less.

But I do have to say that it is not fun for me to download source code that
claims to perform a certian task, and I invest *hours* fooling with it, only
to find out that it is not what it appeared to be (or so easy as it appeared
to be) and my *time* was better spent elsewhere.
