Stan, you be duh man wid' a plan!
Sounds like an excellent idea--do you know (or anyone else for that matter)
when and if this "new language translation" feature will be implemented?
The only other issue is support for reverse sorting--is that currently an item
on the "gnump3d Feature Request List"?
For that matter, is there such a thing as a "gnump3d Feature Request List" to
get a feel for what is coming down the pipeline?
