That's the point. For me I would accept some month working if it makes life 
easier for the rest of my life. The reject of my suggestion is based on the 
work that comes with it. And not because the other solution with an 
additional tool (means more work) is better/simpler.

One time longer work against less, but every time work/attention to handle the 
tools the right way and to collect all the tools and so on...

I really hope that I am not the only one who will benefit from the suggestions 
I make here.
