Thanks for making them .. It is appreciated! ... I find them
incredibly useful (and I was surprised they worked by way of a repo too!)
I am sympathetic to many of the arguements presented against creating them
in repos, and I do create them for myself on the desktop (so to speak) so I
also see the value in that - that said, I almost entirely depend on the
repo indices in PocketSword (a most marvellous tool) where I cannot create
them, so cannot entirely see myself giving up that mode.
I haven't yet spent much time with the And-bible though I down own an Asus
