Hmm, maybe i should offer at Sourceforge a downloadable beta-version of
current CVS-code so people who are willing to play beta-tester can easily
download and install and have no need to checkout from CVS....Yes, i think i
will offer this tomorrow at Sourceforge...i will write an announcement in the
ECB-mailing list and also as followup to this thread.....

You can mail me if you are interested in testing the new feature
(parsing/displaying non-semantic-contents like TeX, LaTeX, perl...Then i will
send you either a message when the beta-version is ready for download or i can
send you a CVS-version of ECB directly...
