I've just re-read my posting here - it's not quite fair. So, I'd like
to add that I think nALFS is extremely good software - I'm just learning
how to use it. It will be even better with some user documentation.
Another personal mantra: "Don't complain about anything you aren't
prepared to try and fix yourself."
So I'll write some documentation for you. (Once I work out how to use it).
