can you file bugs for the missing fields? there is already one for the
missing number of transactions, but the others should be there too. I
don't remember any design decisions, but most likely they were some
distractions on our side during the port.

Documentation is an important item, so it definitely has to be on the

And of course, a very big thank you from all of us for your effort!
