Thanks for the appreciation :-)

I indeed intend to continue, and some more commits on server control and 
configuration are coming up soon.
Following that, I plan to add another (bottom) toolview to display info on 
diagnostics, references, (multiple) definitions ...  Some highlight method calls 
are also related to that area, so may be considered along as well.  That's then 
heading in the direction of features proposed above, one step at a time ;-)
