Well, one of the few things that were hard to understand from the config
were these (how to quote properly and how to pass an arbitrary character
in a parameter - i.e. escape).

I did get all your messages (in duplicate as usual with this list) and I
am quite aware of what is required, I think (remember I already wrote a
small patch concerning that area of the code), only I do not have the time

helps to wait that long ;-).
