Uh oh, I forgot that went back to the list as well. Ohw well.

To answer the remark; yes it does mean that. I'm going to have to do that / 
make that happen, and other miscellaneous stuff.

It is well-known the autocreate patches are not really compatible with a 
traditional Murder setup. I have a branch in my GIT repository, but I'm not 
fully up to speed as to the exact implementation details yet. I'm not at all 
that well a coder anyways.

Maybe we can discuss in a chat session sometime?
