As I wrote in my earlier way, this is not possible easily. textfile
and qlist were not designed for "random acces", only for sequential
access. Use coll or pool (my recommendation) for this.

You also might want to have a look at my Memento system, included in
the abstractions/rradical directory on CVS, which is a very handy
system for presetting on a higher level of abstraction.
