And it was the starting point of contextgarden (and my first web-app).

Good, but let me add a general remark first also on this list.

yes. put that one on the todo list.

already on the todo list...

As my two answers imply, I already have a long todo list for texshow.
(I even have two translation updates from Mojca that I haven't
implemented yet - sorry). I hope that I will have some time between
Christmas and new year for texshow 2. Perhaps we should follow Taco's
suggestion to discuss more technical details on the underlying xml
description on the dev' list.
