i didn't mean any special library; it was rather a comment on the
absence of "grouped by functionality" libs.

i did not want to offend you for pointing to your files.

the thing i was asking about was, whether these objects should be added
to another arbitrary library in svn (a request for which i paranoidedly
sensed), without any benefit.

well, it proves hat you don't need an external to use them :-)
i guess it is rather didactic, but i don't see any harm in having them
