I think I'll have three variables: cipher_limit or cipher_length (which name is better?), cipher_case, and cipher_8bit. > When you added abort/status it looked like a really trivial patch.

Well, I can say that there's a linked list and we initialize it with some structs, but I am not sure if that's a better explanation compared to the source code patch, which I think is self-explanatory. Anyway, I've just moved this to-do item to my list to consider for the very next non-jumbo release. Alexander
