That will be it for today. It should get all you scripters out there going a long long way. All that is left are all teh different elements and also the scripts for the fancy addons like insertions, compositions and such. I'll post it when I've untangled it enough. 0:) Enjoy for now.

EDIT: Added short list for quicker overview of what is available.
