i don't ment an uncountable number of profiles, i think just a few (3- 
max 5) would be usefull. if they are outdated, belongs to the persons 
who take care about it.

nalfs.. but not the profiles. nalfs2 (or whatever it will be called 
then) is not something for tomorrow, its not even for the day after.


however, i personally will continue to have those additional profiles 
for my one use. i just thought, it would be nice to do it at a more 
public point.
