thx. Also I'd like to explicitly mention that most of this great work
has been done by Vijay and Woonsan, so, the credits are theirs. I am
just documenting it a little more and giving a heads up to the public

This was also a point of discussion back then between Woonsan and
Vijay. Woonsan thought it was nice to have it optionally, Vijay didn't
see the added value as he couldn't work with a PropertyEditor in the
template composer any way. So, we kept it in there, but currently, we
are not using it. Also, I cannot exactly reproduce the arguments of
Woonsan. Perhaps he can chime in.

But, you are very right that this is a debatable part.

Regards Ard
