yes, it's better that way. The person who wants to implement it can then add a 
comment on the report.

Should be easy.

yes, me too. Bug.

Bug, yes

All ideas will be welcome. Now that the code is clearer I think we'll be able 
to improve it.

Translating an app is a great way to detect bugs. Thanks for yor work, Marc.
Thanks also to Peter for this code update!
